Michigan, Texas and Wisconsin are the first three states to establish state chapters with the Urban Wood Network through the UWN’s Driving Urban Wood Utilization from Coast to Coast Cost Share program.
The UWN is also in the process of building chapters and local urban wood programs in California, Colorado, Idaho, Michigan, Nebraska, North Carolina and Oregon. Further expansion of chapters and individual memberships is also in the works.
Since its inception, the UWN has connected members with potential partners, customers and experts to help them grow their urban wood businesses. UWN has also educated and informed thousands of urban wood enthusiasts through its webinars featuring urban wood experts from across the country.
Through its latest initiatives, UWN plans to continue collecting and sharing best practices from throughout the urban wood supply chain to help businesses, municipalities, advocates, government agencies and other stakeholders build their local urban wood industries.
