Lecture Description: The world is losing its forests at such an alarming rate we now have global laws in place to protect our remaining woodlands. This lecture guides designers through the dense undergrowth involved in protecting forests. Designers will learn about endangered trees, their illegal logging, and how to identify the origin of wood before they specify. Global Forestry 101 also shows how to identify illegally obtained wood and reviews legal alternatives that protect forests and satisfies client needs. Recent global laws are very serious, and the lecture explores stark examples for design professionals to note so that they can protect their practices.

This lecture is open to the public and free of charge (Registration is not required if you are only attending the lecture).
