Presenters: Zander Evans and Rhiley Allbee, Forest Stewards Guild
On April 22, 2022, the Biden Administration issued Executive Order 14072, which directs the United States Department of Agriculture and the United States Department of the Interior to define, inventory, identify threats towards, and develop policies to mitigate threats to, mature and old growth forests. Dr. Zander Evans will provide some background on what has happened since and the next steps in the process. The US Forest Service has produced an inventory of mature and old growth forests, and a threat assessment is nearly complete. The webinar will also include Rhiley Allbee’s analysis of mature and old growth in collaborative landscape restoration efforts.
