WASHINGTON — The Forest Products Modernization effort gets underway next Tuesday, Dec. 5, 1:30–2:30 p.m. Eastern. Allen Rowley, director of Forest Management, Rangelands Management and Vegetation Ecology will lead a webinar to describe the effort. He will discuss the need to continue to develop and strengthen integrated, collaborative approaches to forest restoration emphasizing strong partnerships and ensuring forest restoration efforts support jobs and rural economies. Having sustainable, healthy, resilient forests in the future depends on our ability to increase work on the ground and achieve increased outcomes.
This effort better aligns our agency culture, policy, direction, and guidance to be more agile and flexible to more efficiently meet current, and readily adapt to future, forest restoration needs and challenges as we continue to use timber harvest as a tool in delivering this forest improvement work.
