    The Virginia Urban Wood Group has an excellent idea for a new special designation day, National Urban Wood Day. There has been a significant influx of wood products and success in this sector. It is time for these products to be recognized on their own day! President Eisenhower signed a proclamation to recognize the value of American forests. This proclamation dedicated the third week of October as National Forest Products Week. The Virginia Wood group is petitioning to the American Wood Council to designate the last day of that week as Urban Wood Day.

    Individuals and groups interested in signing on to the petition can do so by contacting Joe Lehnen at
