The Forest Products Laboratory [exit DNR] in Madison is also holding a special event in celebration of National Forest Products Week. Felled [exit DNR], a documentary film about giving new life to fallen urban trees, will be shown on Tuesday, October 17th at 1:30 pm in room 500 at the Forest Products Lab. Through interviews with industry experts, sawyers, arborists, artists, and woodworkers, the film highlights the growing urban lumber movement and explores themes of waste, craftsmanship, and redemption. A panel discussion with local tree and wood experts follows the free film screening, with tours of the lab available as well. Here's a flyer about the event.
