For more than a century, state foresters have worked to ensure the sustainable management of America’s forests. Trees meet every day needs for wood, paper, clean air, clean water, and outdoor recreation. Yet most Americans do not connect trees to their daily lives.
Fortunately, this is changing. Climate change, catastrophic wildfires, and a global pandemic have added forests to the list of topics discussed at dinner tables across the United States. Corporate initiatives, from Amazon to Walmart, are also recognizing the roles forests can play in creating more environmentally, socially, and economically sustainable futures. And our federal government, evidenced most recently by the passage of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, is making unprecedented investments in forest-based solutions. Forests are truly being rediscovered as America’s greatest renewable natural resource.
This year’s annual meeting will be held in-person. It is expected to attract upwards of 200 forestry and wildland fire leaders and will provide ample opportunity for speakers, vendors, and industry representatives to interact. Its general sessions will highlight new and exciting developments in the field of forestry and explore growth opportunities for wood product markets, sector partnerships, and emerging biotechnologies.
To become a meeting exhibitor or sponsor, please make your commitment by August 24, 2022. Exhibitor and sponsorship inquiries should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
