NASF weighs in on invasive species

This week NASF President Randy Dye testified on invasive species before the House Committee on Natural Resources, Subcommittee on Public Lands and Environmental Regulation. During his testimony, Mr. Dye stressed the importance of continued and improved collaboration between federal, state and local partners to help deal with the increasing issue of invasive species on all forest land.

He also took the opportunity to speak about the important role state forestry agencies have in administering programs and stewardship actions meant to prevent, eradicate, slow the spread and address the collateral damage caused by these invaders. Mr. Dye also passed along NASF recommendations on strategies to be considered for any comprehensive invasive species legislation.
