Using more wood for construction can slash global reliance on fossil fuels

A study led by Global Institute Director Chad Oliver has found that using more wood and less steel and concrete in building and bridge construction would substantially reduce global carbon dioxide emissions and fossil fuel consumption.

The Global Institute offers week-long courses that bring the latest thinking on sustainable forestry management to working professionals.

The Executive Education in Forestry Course

March 22 - 27, 2015

“’Out of the box’ type of stimulating lectures in an atmosphere that inspired active participation among the students.”
Annika Hall, Investment Advisor

"I really enjoyed the Executive Education in Forestry course. In fact, it was one of the highlights of my federal career. For a professional that deals with forestry issues but lacks a degree in forestry or a science background, the Executive Education in Forestry was the most efficient means to gain that knowledge base."
Lincoln Bramwell, Chief Historian for USDA Forest Service
