Columbia Forest Products has announced an agreement with Greenwod Tree Farm Fund (GTFF) to use its FSC-certified timber for its MPX hardwood plywood.

The plantation-grown hybrid poplar log will be used for the creation of core veneers for the hardwood panels, which feature PureBond formaldehyde-free technology. Popular panels are superior to those made of fir and pine, according to the manufacturer, because they can suppress the thickness variation and core telegraphing of the veneers.
