This Blueprint for Action is the result of two years of study by the Vermont Forest Products Council (VFPC) on the challenges to the value-added wood products industry.

It is designed to serve as an action plan to promote value-added wood manufacturing in the state of Vermont.

As such, it documents 24 action steps in four broad areas that the Doublas Administration, Legislature, and the industry itself should undertake to support in-state wood processing, manufacture, and craftsmanship.

The success of the value-added forest products economy (and ultimately, the conservation of Vermont’s “working landscape”) depends on progress in four areas outlined in this report: Marketing, Economic Development, Education and Training, and Wood Resources.
