Farm Show’s Popular WoodMobile Has Local Connection To Emporium

 

 

The Pennsylvania WoodMobile is a main attraction at the Pennsylvania Farm Show. This project originated in 2002 by the Hardwoods Development Council, Pennsylvania Forest Products Association and Deer Park Lumber in Tunkhannock, Pa. owned by the Andrews Family of Emporium and Tunkhannock.

The WoodMobile  is a traveling exhibit that provides information on the state’s forest resource and the state’s forest products industry.  Visitors to the exhibit will see how the forests of Pennsylvania have shaped the history of the state and nation, learn how today’s forest differs from 100 years ago, touch the various hardwood species produced in Pennsylvania, and use touchscreen technology to interact with various threats to the forests such as invasive insects and plants, diseases and white-tailed deer.
