You are here: FPL Home / Research / Units / Forest Products Marketing Unit / Small Diameter Roundwood Small Diameter Roundwood Forests in the United States contain a significant amount of small-diameter and underutilized material. The research results in more resilient, more sustainable wood structures.

Fundamental research by the group may result in entirely new wood products that have the potential to increase the market for wood and/or small diameter wood which would increase the health of the Nation’s National Forest System.

Founded inthe Forest Products Laboratory in Madison, Wisconsin, uses science and technology to conserve and extend our Nation’s forest resources. FPL is recognized around the world as a source of unbiased information about wood science and use.

Most of Forest Service forest products research is performed at the Forest Products Laboratory in Madison Wisconsin, the only federal laboratory that is dedicated to forest products research.

Several other Forest Service research stations also conduct forest products research with a focus on regional interest. Center for Forest Mycology Research.

FPL researchers also provide technology to help rural communities create successful businesses from the by-products of ecosystem management. Some projects have explored the potential of "in the round" form small-diameter structural material Jurisdiction: Federal Government of the United States.

History. It was founded by the Forest Products Research Board, established inoverseen by the Department of Scientific and Industrial Research (itself created in ).

The Forest Products Research Board was mainly interested in the economic value of tropical forests in the British Empire. The Forestry Conference had been held in lenges to increase the adoption of whole-timber as a primary structural material.

Madison, WI: Forest Products Laboratory, Wolfe, Ron. “Research Challenges for Structural Use of Small-Diameter Round Timbers.”. The Forest Products Laboratory has made numerous important contributions to the country during its history, including crucial research for the armed forces during both WWI and WWII.

During WWI, the laboratory performed experiments on wood for airplane construction, as well as research into box and packaging materials. An exploratory test program was undertaken to determine the withdrawal strengths of through-bolt with cross-pipe and nut connections in the ends of selected timbers.

Results of the tests indicate that high strength end connections (25, 1b.) can be obtained in structural timbers with these connectors, but surface checks and drying splits significantly reduced the strength ofthe joints and.

The Forest Products Laboratory (FPL) was created inand was moved to its current building atop a knoll overlooking the University of Wisconsin Madison Campus in There, research is conducted on all things wood-related. The lab’s xylarium, or research wood collection, is.

For. Jennifer M. Conda of the DOST- Forest Products Research and Development Institute (DOST-FPRDI) was named the Outstanding Young Scientist for Research in Forest and Natural Resources Utilization by the Forests and Natural Resources Research Society of the Philippines, Inc.

(FORESPI). She was cited for her work in the fields of wood. The Oregon Forest Products Laboratory, within the limitations of its staff, will assist manufacturers, users, and others in applying technical knowledge that will enable them to utilize the forest crop more 'fully and to obtain greater satisfaction and serviceability from forest products.

Forestry Research .To improve the environmental health of our National Forests, we need to increase the market potential of many hardwood and softwood speices. Low cost treatment options for small diameter materials are needed to develop value added markets of excess biomass being removed to reduce the wildfire hazard as part of the National Fire Plan.

This project aims to improve our ability to treat a diverse.The Forest Products Laboratory (FPL) is the national research laboratory of the United States Forest Service, which is part of its opening inthe FPL has provided scientific research on wood, wood products and their commercial uses in partnership with academia, industry, tribal, state, local and other government agencies.
