Status of Domestic Wood Packaging Material
January 24, 2014
The possibility of a requirement for all wood packaging material to be “phytosanitized” arose in 2009 when the USDA Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service posted an Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking to that effect. This webinar will cover the evolution of this specific issue as well as others in the time period from 2009 to the present. The West Virginia University Appalachian Hardwood Center will host the event. The webinar is free but attendance is limited so pre-registration will be required. For more information and registration, contact Jeff Slahor, 304.293.9423.
