DescriptionIn 2010, the Forest Products Laboratory (FPL) celebrated its 100th anniversary — a significant milestone in its history. Throughout its century of public service, the FPL has conducted wood and fiber utilization research that contributes to the conservation and productivity of forest resources and to sustainably meeting the needs of people for forest products. Located in Madison, WI, the FPL has specifically focused on creating forest biomass utilization science and technology that simultaneously helps solve national problems and achieves national forest land management goals.
