Maryland honors state’s first forester

Maryland honored its first state forester this week, when the Board of Public Works voted to name 1,000 acres of woods in Dorchester County for Fred W. Besley. Named state forester in 1906, Besley had been handpicked for the job by Gifford Pinchot, the first chief of the U.S. Forest Service.
