The carbon debate seems to be everywhere these days. Whether it is carbon storage, carbon sequestration, or even carbon offset markets, carbon-related terminology is becoming more prevalent and part of our everyday vernacular.
Back in April, I dedicated an entire blog article to acknowledging recent award recipients representing FRA’s Southcentral Region. I would like to take this opportunity to recognize the outstanding performance from several folks in the Southeastern Region during the last year.
The FRA Southcentral Region recently recognized its 2021 award winners during the Southwide Region Virtual Spring Meeting held on April 13th. The annual award process honors outstanding loggers as well as authors of exceptional FRA Technical Releases at the region level. This year’s award winners certainly did their part to make a positive impact on the forest products industry.
That is the forest products industry in the Southern U.S. Pretty impressive statistics, to say the least. It is easy to see why the region is commonly referred to as the wood basket of the world. It takes the skill and expertise of many dedicated natural resource professionals to ensure the forest products industry is well-equipped to meet the world’s demand for wood fiber and forest-based manufactured goods.
