    Many varied efforts have been underway to help the hardwood industry make more effective and efficient use of the hardwood resource while meeting market needs. The efforts range from training, extension, utilization and marketing research and development, to educational activities. The activities are disjointed and unorganized and individually struggling to maintain funding. To help overcome these problems we have formed the Hardwood Utilization Consortium. Our role is to improve hardwood resource viability through better utilization, technology, markets, cooperative extension and education in the eastern United States by collaboration to better utilize pooled resources, apply expertise and communicate needs. In this paper, we present the Hardwood Utilization Consortium as an innovative and coordinated solution for the hardwood industry.
