    Description

    A search for opportunities to use pinyon pine is currently being conducted at Colorado State University by the Colorado Wood Utilization and Marketing Program as part of an effort to improve financial feasibility of forest restoration and hazardous fuel reduction work in pinyon-juniper stands. The properties of pinyon wood reveal that it is suitable for a range of traditional and value-added products. However, significant utilization challenges must be overcome, including the economics of harvesting, transporting, and processing pinyon, supply inconsistencies, lack of market development, and need for additional research into processing pinyon before increased utilization will occur.
