Osborn-2009_smLarry Osborn, wood anatomy & identification specialist with the AHC, taught two one-day wood anatomy & identification workshops during 2010 for the Continuing Education for Forensic Professionals Program.  This is a national training program funded through the National Institute of Justice, and managed by the Forensic Sciences Initiative at West Virginia University. Training programs were held in Ft. Worth, TX and Boston, MA.

In addition to hands-on identification of some of the primary domestic & imported wood species that are likely to be encountered, discussion topics included basic wood properties & products, collection and storage of wood and woody plant based evidence, criminal case studies where wood evidence played a significant role, and other opportunities in criminal cases such as fingerprints and wood objects, arson, domestic & international timber theft and related recent legislation.

Additional workshops are scheduled for October 2010 and summer of 2011, specifically for art museum restoration specialists and curators.

Wood and tree identification services and workshops are available to industry, interested organizations & groups, and the public on a request basis. Examination of wood and woody plant evidence for criminal and civil cases can also be performed.
