Forest Certification: Its Legacy and Future in Maine
2019 Maine SAF Annual Fall Meeting
Monday, October 7 and Tuesday, October 8, 2019
Wells Conference Center, Orono, Maine
While third-party forest certification has been around since the late 1980s and early 1990s, it has become a driving force in Maine – and nationally and internationally – over the last approximately 25 years (1993-2018). In this regard, now is an opportune time to reflect on the history of forest certification and how it has changed forest management, how markets for forest products have responded, and what the future holds. This conference is co-hosted the University of Maine and Maine Division of the Society of American Foresters. The first day will focus on the land management perspective with the second focused more on the socio-economic perspective.
Registration is now closed.
