From Metropolis to Wilderness: Foresters Rooted in Conservation,

The 2020 SAF Convention will explore how we play a critical role in fostering local and worldwide economies, vibrant communities, and thriving forests. In our world of shifting land use, changing markets, and external health pressures we all share a common role of responsible forest stewardship.

•Eastern and Western White Pine

•Urban and Community Forestry

•Managing Forests as Watersheds

•Consulting Forestry: Useful Skills, Knowledge, and Case Studies

•Wood Procurement from Stump to Mill: An Essential Multi-Skilled Job
