FRA’s Appalachian Region, managed by Rick Meyer, serves FRA members throughout the stretch of mountainous area bordered by western Maryland, Illinois, Tennessee, and western North Carolina. It focuses on improving timber harvesting safety, efficiency, and environmental performance. Trucking efficiency and wood fiber availability are current issues of concern. The Region hosts a Forest Products Security Group and conducts a two-day Annual Meeting in the fall.
