The National Forest Foundation (NFF) announced today the winners of the 2015 Barrett Foundation Business Concept Challenge. This unique competition awards the best entrepreneurial approaches that solve one or more of the challenges facing America’s 193-million-acre National Forest System.

Concept Challenge Winner, WholeTrees Structures Co-Founder Amelia Baxter was pleased with the recognition from the National Forest Foundation and Craig R. Barrett.  “It’s an honor to have our company recognized by a business luminary like Dr. Barrett.  We provide an incentive for healthy forest management by taking what would otherwise be forest waste and transforming it into a highly valued construction material.  It’s a delight to see this approach honored on a national stage.”
