Your place to learn more about the use and markets for non-timber forest products!
|Interest in non-timber
forest products (NTFPs) is increasing rapidly. At present there are numerous
efforts to increase awareness of these products, their management and market
potential. However, there is a shortage of information available and there
are few means effective in disseminating the information necessary for the
sustainable management and marketing of these resources and products.
The Virginia Tech Department of Wood Science and Forest Products, the USDA Forest Service Southern Research Station and the Top of the Ozarks RC&D in Missouri are collaborating to develop and operate the first web site devoted to gathering information on products and markets. We are compiling information in simple formats and provide a national clearing house for NTFPs - accessible to harvesters and growers, marketers, processors, and end-users.
Help us make this a useful tool for forest managers, processors or marketers of NTFPs:
If you would like to contribute any NTFP information to this site, please send e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Market information, regular updates with new information, and listings on short courses, conferences and relevant publications will also be features of the web site. Eventually, the web site will include direct links with markets, both national and overseas.
