Nov. 16 Joint Conservation Committee Environmental Forum On Sustainable Forestry

The next Joint Legislative Air and Water Pollution Control and Conservation Committee Environmental Forum will be held on November 16 and will feature a presentation by Chuck Coup, Program Manager for the Pennsylvania Sustainable Forestry Initiative.
Currently celebrating their 20th anniversary, the PA SFI is an organization committed to promoting sustainable forest management and responsible forestry practices throughout the Commonwealth.
One of their most acclaimed initiatives is the Professional Timber Harvester Training Program which to date has trained over 7,000 loggers in sustainable tree harvesting techniques.
The organization also conducts extensive work with private landowners who comprise over 70 percent of the state’s total forest ownership base.
The Forum will be held in Hearing Room 8E-A of the East Wing Capitol Building starting at noon.
Sen. Scott Hutchinson (R-Venango) serves as Chair of the Joint Committee.
