Message from the Chair

As your Co-Chairs for 2016-2017, we look forward to a productive year. Forest resource issues continue to be at the center of many ongoing legal and policy issues around management of federal, state, and private forest lands. We welcome your input, ideas, and participation in the Committee in the coming 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. Through newsletters and programs, we strive to provide information to our committee members that are not available from any other organization.
