This FRA Region, managed by Lindsay Warness, Western Region Manager, serves members in the western states. FRA’s Western Region addresses the improvement of wood fiber quality, forest biomass utilization, and wood fiber transportation safety and efficiency. The Western Region also works with allied associations to defend access to the western forest resource and increase workforce connections throughout the states. The Region hosts two annual Region Meetings and compiles monthly reports on clean air/green power, and fiber consumption and inventory.
