At OHIO we’ve been a passionate supporter and user of managed forest timber well before such criteria became the standard it is today. We’ve always recognized that as furniture designers and makers we are converting raw lumber into items for the home that will last a life time, and in doing so we are revaluing the material to a high degree. So its with great interest we see that researchers from Woods Hole Research Centre with the help from the U.S. Forest Service and U.S. Geological Survey as they have been mapping the tree and shrub population of the U.S.

Over the last 6 years Josef Kellndorfer and Wayne Walker have been plotting and charting every 30 metro square of land across the whole continent to bring an incredibly detailed observation of the current condition.
