SOU to Host Timber Puppets Rey, Salwasser and Sessions
11 Apr 2004 20:26 GMT
Mark Rey, former timber industry lobbyist and current Undersecratary of Agriculture in charge of the US Forest Service, Hal Salwasser, Dean of the College of Forestry at Oregon State University (OSU) and John Sessions, professor of Forest Economics at OSU will assemble for the Oregon Society of American Foresters Annual Meeting at Southern Oregon University in Ashland.
These architects of extreme forest policy and science are responsible for the "Biscuit Fire Recovery Project", the largest and most extreme salvage logging proposal in modern history on our public lands. Their vision for the future rests squarely on drastic increases in public lands logging, under the guise of the so-called "Healthy Forests Initiative."
