From the Archives: Wood Products Promotional Video

Bill Siebert, one of the founders of HCC's Wood Products program, recently shared this promotional video highlighting the college's sawmill and program(cerca early 1990's?). While the wood products program was halted in 2003, the college received a grant from the US Forest Service's Wood Education and Resource Center in 2008 to crank up the mill again to offer short courses in lumber grading, log grading and scaling, and other wood products training. This spring, 18 Forest Management curriculum students and local sawyers took part in the project's first short course. Due to the economic situation facing the regional wood products industry, the project has been extended through 2011.
