New Publication on Forest Products Business

May 21, 2015 –  

A new publication on Business Management Practices for Small to Medium Forest Products Firms, authored by Drs. Omar Espinoza, University of Minnesota and Bob Smith from SBIO.

The contents of this book are based on the authors’ management experience in the forest products industry and as educators and researchers. The idea for this effort arose from our interactions with industry, in which many owners and managers identified education in business management and planning as a major need for companies.

This project was supported by the Wood Education and Resource Center, Northeastern Area State and Private Forestry, Forest Service, U.S. Department of  Agriculture, award number: 2010-DG-148.
