For Woodpreneurs, leaving a positive impact on our environment is of the utmost importance. Employing sustainable practices when it comes to the wood that is used and sourced, re-purposing what would have been considered waste, and educating others on the importance of these practices is at the foundation of everything we do. On this talk, Jennifer Alger of Urban Salvaged and Reclaimed Woods will educate you on the current state and improvements that have been made to these practices.
Jennifer Alger is President of Far West Forest Products and has been working with urban and salvaged woods for over 20 years. She is the director of the non-profit network USRW Inc. that has developed the first-ever Urban Lumber Standards for North America. These Standards, currently in review, will be a game-changer for the industry and for the first time allow Chain-of-Custody certification for Urban Salvaged Woods. She is working with an expert team of developers and customer experience specialists on the build-out of AncesTREE™an Inventory Management System and enterprise application that will allow users to easily adhere to the industry standards, track the chain-of-custody, manage their inventory, and generally better manage and grow their urban lumber businesses.
