2021 National Firewood Workshop

June 9, 2021 @ 8:00 am – June 10, 2021 @ 4:00 pm
North Carolina State University Extension

North Carolina State University Wood Products Extension will hold the 2021 National Firewood Workshop online on June 9th and 10th.

This free two-day workshop will focus on the business side of the split firewood industry. We invite everyone to come and dig deep into the business issues of operating a profitable firewood business and have the top professionals in the firewood industry discuss the issues of equipment, sourcing wood, insects and quarantines, marketing, sound business management, transportation, brokers buying for large stores, dry kilns, automation and employee issues.

The workshop will include a combination of discussions in a group setting as well as outdoor demos of equipment converting logs into split firewood. We will have a distinguished group of firewood and forest industry professionals discuss the business aspect of the firewood industry with the focus on operating a profitable firewood business.

This is a great workshop for buyers and sellers of firewood as well as equipment vendors, arborists, foresters and government supporters of forestry.

There is no cost to attend this online workshop and one can attend as much of the two day event as wanted.
