BA Harrington and student

The Wood Center’s Harvest-to-Use Initiative began in 2004 with the purchase of a portable bandsaw mill that allows for the cutting of tree logs into usable lumber. The first major milling processed the many pin oaks cut down in 2006 to make way for the construction of the Suites on Pratt. 

Harrington’s presentation will discuss the various projects that have been made with IUP lumber as well as future plans related to the Sustainability curriculum at IUP.

This talk is part of a speaker series organized by the newly created Sustainability Studies minor.
