Timber Security Webinar

Jeff Maynard of International Paper and Aaron Gilland of Dendro Resource Management led this webinar on the basics of timber security. Jeff Maynard, Fiber Security Manager for International Paper, spoke on “Elements of a Successful Timber Security Program.” His presentation is designed to help management or ownership of a company determine if they need a timber security program, and what questions should be asked when making this decision. Aaron Gilland, President of Dendro Resource Management, a timber security company based out of South Carolina, spoke on “Ten Things Everyone Needs to Know About Timber Security.” This presentation included reviewing the basics every forester, wood buyer, and wood supply chain manager should know about preventing fraud and theft related to timber transactions and other timber security-related issues. Both presentations are an excellent training tool for entry-level natural resource professionals and a good review for experienced foresters and wood supply chain managers.
