In Wildfire news: Canada braces for another season of flames; Oregon sends a strike team to help fire-ravaged Texas; Michigan’s shaded fuel brakes prove effective; Alberta ups its wildfire emergency fund; a new study says BC’s forest fuel load data is inaccurate; and researchers say Washington’s wetter forests are at risk.

In Business news: Doman completes its acquisition of Southeast Forest Products; Millson Forestry Service secures an Ontario biomass grant; Irving upgrades its Saint John’s woodyard; UFP expands in Warrens, Wisconsin; opposition mounts to a biomass facility in Memphis; and Timberlink opens its new CLT mill in South Australia. Meanwhile: US construction spending is up, while the housing supply gap widens. 

Finally, NASA’s climate idea sounds like a children’s book, and 200 years of forest history through dioramas.
