There has been some concern in the forest industry that the slump in pine harvesting following the Great Recession – combined with excessive inventory accumulation and poor stumpage pricing – may have contributed to a severe decline in tree planting in recent years.
On March 21, the Forest Resources Association honored Bruce Hooker with its Southcentral Region Second Place Technical Writing Award for 2018. This annual Award recognizes the best Technical Releases published and posted on FRA’s website.
