Webinar: Non-Timber Forest Products in the United States: Access, Production, Markets, and Market Values
April 14, 2020–December 31, 1969
1:00 p.m. EST
Non-timber forest products (NTFPs) are derived from natural populations of plants or fungi, or farmed in forests. Although numerous and varied users harvest, trade, and consume NTFPs, relatively little is known about the organization of the markets for these products and the market value or contribution to local and regional economies. We will explore past research and gaps in current understanding related to the access, production, markets, and market values of NTFPs in the United States, including the continuum of production from wild-harvesting to forest farming of NTFPs.
Presented by Dr. Jim Chamberlain, Research Forest Products Technologist with SRS, and Dr. Gregory Frey, Research Forester with SRS.
