Looking forward

Stepping into the Executive Director position for the Forest Stewards Guild is a great honor. The Guild’s vision for socially, ecologically, and economically responsible forestry is laudable, and a necessary goal for our society to be sustainable. Even more importantly, the Guild’s members, supporters, and staff put this vision into practice in forests across the country, in multiple ways. I’ve seen evidence of this in the work Guild members have done to slowly enhance forests degraded by previous decades of high grading.

Southeast Region Meeting and Collins Pine, California Guild Gathering successes!

The Forest Stewards Guild, our partners at the Duke Forest at Duke University, and Guild members David Schnake and Dave Halley held a regional meeting on the theme of innovative hardwood silviculture in the southern Piedmont, including short-leaf pine management.

Partners and members of Collins Pine Company in California hosted this year's final Guild Gathering on the books. A rich collection of discussion topics allowed attendees to learn new perspectives on multi-age management. Future California Guild Gatherings are desired, and thoughts were shared about how we can assess the effects of climate change through future, replicate treatments.

Thanks for making these gatherings an enjoyable success!

Living with Fire: Fire Adapted Community Preparedness in Northern Minnesota

In July, the Forest Stewards Guild worked with Dovetail Partners, Minnesota DNR, USDA Forest Service, and others to host an outreach effort for seasonal and permanent residents and visitors to the Ely, Minnesota area. Ely lies in the heart of northern Minnesota’s fire-dependent forest ecosystem and is on the edge of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. The area around Ely has seen a number of significant forest fires in the last several years, including one that entered the city limits.
