The Great Ice Storm of 1998

brought down trees and powerlines throughout much of Northeastern North America. Afterward, many standing, but damaged trees were cut as well. Most of this wood was burned as firewood or left to rot. The amount of wood was immense; if used to make wood products, it could save thousands, perhaps millions of undamaged trees from being cut. The storm of '98 was especially severe, but almost every year Northern forests sustain ice damage. Yet, due to the limitations inherent in mass-production lumbering, only a few wood products will ever be made from this wood. The Ice-Storm Twig Pen is one of them.
