Forest Concepts LLC was formed in 1998 by experienced industry professionals as a forest products and bio-based materials research and development company. Company founders brought decades of experience in the forest and agricultural industries, mostly related to technology development and deployment.

We have been very adept at identifying the "big deal" technology gaps and preparing highly competitive proposals to federal agencies and others.
