Forest Resources

Message from the Chair

As the new chairperson of the committee, I want to thank all the leaders who served the committee so well last year. I am looking forward to a productive year raising the forest resources law and policy issues to the forefront of the Section on Energy, Environment and Resources efforts. I am eager to introduce you all to the new vice chairpersons. This roster is diverse with varying interests in forest resources law and policy, from across the country, and from a variety of sectors, with many continuing their service to the committee from last year.

Committee Description

The Forest Resources committee addresses virtually every issue that touches both private and public forest lands. We focus on all legal, policy and practical issues relevant to owners, lenders, trade associations, managers, users, non-profits and others who are interested in forest lands.
