Leahy speaks to WFVX about wood banks in need

Jessica Leahy, University of Maine Henry W. Saunders Distinguished Professor in Forestry, spoke with WFVX (Channel 7) about wood banks needing support as they become established. “All of the existing wood banks are distributing their wood almost as quickly as they can produce it and dry it,” she said. Leahy also discussed the assistance she has provided to various wood banks in the state. “We can provide advice to wood banks that want to start or even existing wood banks. We can connect them to natural resources,” she said.
