The panel will highlight diverse and dynamic approaches to providing social, environmental, and economic benefits through the use of wood products and mass timber.

Building project examples and lessons learned will be shared to illustrate opportunities to connect to the forest, support local communities, meet environmental standards, and address inequities.
