The CURA publications library is currently being digitized by the University of Minnesota Digital Conservancy. When the project is complete, the entire CURA publications library will be online and fully searchable. Unfortunately, during this process we are not able to honor individual requests for publications . Additionally, we no longer have physical copies of publications to send out.

New publications are digitized daily and the publications catalog on the CURA website is not automatically updated with links to scanned copies, so please search the CURA collection at the Digital Conservancy for the publications you are looking for:

Upper Mississippi Forest Certification Initiative.

Author: 
Mullen, Meredith.

The purpose of this report was to determine two to three forest products from north/central Minnesota certified land, with the intention of identifying the best markets for these products, and the best strategies for reaching those markets. Initially, six products and species were selected as the most promising, from which flooring, paneling and pallets came out as the top products, ash, oak, birch and aspen as the top species. The methodology used was to first identify the markets for these products, then to survey the purchasers of wood products in those markets via phone interviews. The report is prioritized around the survey findings for each market for these three products. The surveys are included in the appendixes at the end of the report.
