Recovered wood byproducts from high-tech mills are engineered into new, useful consumer products. Wood chemists research and develop new adhesives, preservatives and other innovative products.
Evolving technological and environmental objectives create new career opportunities in the forest sector every day. By any measure, jobs in Oregon’s forest sector are green jobs.
