NASF responds to USDA Secretary Vilsack’s new vision for America’s forests

In a recent letter to U.S Department of Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack, the National Association of State Foresters (NASF) applauded the new vision he shared for America's forests during an August 14 address in Seattle. State Foresters have a long history of working cooperatively with the Forest Service and were pleased to see the secretary recognize that the agency's responsibilities extend well beyond national forests and urge more visible support for the agency's state and private role.
