Public Policy Seminar Provides Opportunity to Explore Issues Facing State Lawmakers

Tom Saunders is the General Counsel and Director of Government Affairs for the Alabama Forestry Association. He also plays a part in putting together the annual Public Policy Series, which is designed to "provide a comprehensive detailed focus on legal, legislative and regulatory issues affecting timberland owners and forest product manufacturers. At the annual event, which is hosted each January at The Grand Hotel, government officials discuss topics covering everything from land ownership and new legislation to court system updates and appropriations analyses. Though an official agenda has not been released yet for this year's meeting, which is scheduled for January 28-30, 2024, the title is "The State of Alabama's Governance: Improving the Quality of Life in Rural Alabama." Thus far, more than 80 state officials have signed up to attend. Tom joins us to talk more about what can be expected from this annual event and why you should register to attend now.

Forest Resource Report: Growth Exceeds Harvest on Alabama's 23-Million Acre Forest

Dan Chappell is the Assistant Division Director-Forest Management for the Alabama Forestry Commission. Each year, the Alabama Forestry Commission analyzes data from numerous sources to provide a detailed and unique view of the dynamic resource that is the Alabama forest. Through painstaking and consistent work, they are able to glean significant details about which tree species are increasing, which may be declining, which are being harvested at a young age, and which are allowed to grow for a longer period of time. Dan joins us to share the need-to-know details from the 2022 Forest Resource Report and the good news that timber growth is exceeding harvest in Alabama.

Timber Sales: There's an App for That

Josh Gamblin is the co-founder of TMBR.market, a company seeking to bring timber owners, consultants, and buyers together through an easy-to-use app. The app is dedicated to making it easy for these groups to participate in their local timber market and for land owners to sell their timber. (*Note: AFOA strongly encourages landowners have their consulting forester help them with any timber sale.) Josh joins us to talk about the app, why he created it, and how it helps landowners.
