In Memoriam: Paul Lyskave, DCNR Conservation & Natural Resources Advisory Council

The Department of Conservation and Natural Resources is saddened by the loss of Paul Lyskava, who served as a member of the Conservation and Natural Resources Advisory Council.
Paul also was the Executive Director of the PA Forest Products Association, helping to position Pennsylvania as the leading hardwood lumber producing state in the nation.
Paul was asked by Gov. Wolf to serve on the Governor’s Green Ribbon Task Force, a commission to further advance the forest products industry.
For the four years prior to his affiliation with PFPA, Paul served as the Executive Director of the PA Hardwood Development Council, at the Department of Agriculture.
“Though Paul was much more astute to legislation than forest harvest management plans, and much more polished on industry issues as opposed to silvicultural academics, his efforts over the span of his career had an equal value in impact on protecting and conserving the forest, as well as aiding everyone involved in the forest products industry on any level,” said PFPA Chairman Burt Craig.
Among other honors, Paul was recognized with the PA Forestry Association’s Joseph T. Rothrock Award in 2015.
