Conference Presentations

In June 2018, Northwest Natural Resource Group and The Evergreen State College convened scientists, foresters, land managers, mill owners, architects, builders, educators, and forest stewards to develop a better understanding of considerations for Pacific Northwest forest management in a changing climate, how carbon storage is measured and accounted for, and the role of solid wood and engineered wood products.

Details and background information are available on the conference homepage. The schedule, detailed program, abstracts and speaker bios are available here in the conference program.

View the presentations from each session below (in PDF form).

Session #1: Forest management for resilience, sustainability, and carbon storage
