Working with Nature – The Century of Forests and Forest Products

Wednesday, April 25, 2018 3:30 PM - 5:00 PM

Carlton N. Owen President & CEO

U.S. Endowment for Forestry and Communities


As the world’s population continues to grow it is more critical than ever that we adopt lifestyles -- government, industry and personally -- that work with and build on natural systems rather than against it.  Few natural resources have the breadth and depth of potential of that found in individual trees and entire forests to meet human needs while also ensuring quality of life.  In decades ahead we will begin to see a shift from chemical- and heavy metal-based materials to natural ones.  This shift should truly unlock a new era for forests and forest products.
