Event description

Description

Join local forest steward, Jon Stewart, on a walking exploration of his family’s Raincloud forest and the steps they and their partners are taking to understand and demonstrate climate-smart forestry.

With rising concerns about changing climate, this is an opportunity to learn about ways that local forests can contribute to reducing CO2 levels while also being healthy, productive forests. Participants will learn about and discuss the forest and carbon management strategies at Raincloud forest, including challenges of carbon accounting and marketing. Discussion will cover possible wood product pathways to provide an optimal carbon outcome.

  • How can such forest-to-product pathways be supported by foresters, manufacturers, architects, builders, and customers?
  • What’s needed for landowner assistance, wood procurement, and public policy to support an optimal forest carbon outcome?
