Poplar Ceiling Grille Demonstration

As part of the 2017 harvest on the MWMC Biocycle Farm, a small portion of logs were held for a demonstration project to show potentially viable uses of poplar beyond existing regional markets for veneer, wood chips, and hog fuel. Staff worked with Urban Lumber to have the logs locally milled, and coordinated with 9Wood to fabricate ceiling grilles, which were installed in the Library Meeting Room at Springfield City Hall, 225 Fifth Street. Check out this images below to learn more about the process and the product.
