Economic Impact from the tariffs and the trade war with China

Dana Lee Cole is the Executive Director of the Washington, D.C. based Hardwood Federation, that is "the unified voice of the hardwood industry."  American log and wood exporters have been significantly pinched by the recent tariff war between the U.S. and China. A Washington Post article said that wood exports to China dropped by $700 million, or 42 percent. We have asked Dana to explain the trade war, how it has impacted the hardwood industry and how the industry can get back on track.

Suggested reading:

Twists and turns and tweets and turmoil of the U.S. trade war with China.

Conservation workshops for teachers benefit many

Ashley Smith is the Director of Education Programs for the Alabama Forestry Association.  Many students in Alabama suffer from the lack of conservation education, which in turn, will create a shortage of folks who do not understand the importance of working forests. The Alabama Forestry Association is trying to change that with their annual Teachers Conservation Workshop. This year, they are offering two workshops: one in Tuscaloosa and one in Auburn. We feel that this is an important program that forest landowners should support by recommending or by sponsoring a teacher's tuition expenses.

Forestry for Non-foresters workshop is a great way to learn some basics about forestry

Dr. Kris Irwin is a Senior Public Service Faculty Member at the University of Georgia’s Daniel B. Warnell School of Forestry & Natural Resources. Landowners need to know about the forestry industry in order to better manage their properties. Dr. Irwin has instructed Forestry for Non-Foresters short course since 2004. We want to learn about the workshop and who would most benefit by taking the course.

Dr. Irwin and Dr. Bill Hubbard speak to the Alabama Forest Owners' Association about Forestry for Non-Foresters
