1. Design, install, and demonstrate a public boardwalk from Eastern larch.
2. Disseminate the economic and environmental benefits of thermally modified Eastern larch utilization to landowners, timber harvesters and processors, wood products distributors/wholesalers, and other industry stakeholders interested in potential investment in regional thermally modified wood production capacity.
