Connecticut Professional Timber Producers Association
WORKING WITH YOU
TO KEEP CONNECTICUT WOODLANDS
HEALTHY AND SAFE.
Below Left: TIMPRO Board Member Joan Nichols (red vest) guided Connecticut students in natural resource programs through an Envirothon field experience identifying trees. Students (right) learned about wood products. Envirothon is a natural resouce based curriculum for high school students that culminates in a field day competition. The program was started and is carried out by Conservation Districts across the country. The wi nners of CT Envirothon go on to represent the state at the Canon North American Envirothon where they compete with teams from most US States and Canadian Provinces. Team CT has won first place in this event three times and consistently achieves high scores. The mission of Envirothon is to promote environmental awareness, knowledge, and active personal stewardship among Connecticut high school students through education and team competition.
The Connecticut Professional Timber Producers Association are committed to informing its members of legislation affecting the Connecticut forest products industry and will provide testimony to the legislature on behalf of its membership.
Continuing Education Programs
The Connecticut Professional Timber Producers Association sponsors workshops throughout the year to meet the growing demands of the forest products industry. All programs are approved by the CT DEP Division of Forestry for CEU credits for CT Certified Forest Practitioners. Visit the Calendar on this website for updates on classes and programs.
Community Outreach Programs
The Association reaches out to the non-forestry community to improve the image and understanding of the forest products industry. We accomplish this through involvement in school programs, participation in agricultural fairs and events and sponsorship of educational programs. The Connecticut Professional Timber Producers Association is also the proud sponsor of the Connecticut Log A Load for Kids Campaign which raises money annually for the Hartford Connecticut Children's Medical Center.
