Woodland - Spring 2019 - 32

In addition to first-hand accounts and guidance
from others, these landowners were able to tap into
educational materials and learn about other resources
available to help them make the right decisions
about their land and the steps to take after an event
like Hurricane Michael and Florence. Chris Demers,
Extension Program Manager at the University of Florida,
also provided landowners with an information packet
that contained important contacts, key points and
articles relevant to the challenges that faced them.
This workshop, organized by the Florida Tree Farm
program, would not have been possible if not for the
support of the Florida Forest Service, American Forest
Foundation, Sustainable Forestry Initiative, Enviva and
the Florida Tree Farm Program members, among others.

Why Disaster Recovery Policies Matter
for Family Forest Owners
Beyond the activity in Blountstown, landowners,
agencies and conservation organizations across the
country are working together to compile the right
resources to restore forests affected by disasters like
the recent hurricanes in the South and wildfires in the
West. There is a significant need to assist communities
and family forest owners in recovering from these
catastrophic events. Healthy forests provide critical
infrastructure services to urban and rural populations
including watershed protection, critical habitat for
species (including threatened and endangered species),
and substantial economic support through forest
management, wood products, and forest-dependent
recreation. These are benefits that extend well beyond
those who own and steward these private forests.
Strong policies that meet private landowners' needs
are required, so these areas can recover more quickly
and continue to support the ecosystems and economies
that depend on them.
Strength in Numbers: Advocacy for Landowners
Landowners across the country are getting in
front of state and federal policymakers to share their
stories, voice their concerns and underscore the need
for strong programs and funding that recognize the
important role our family forests have for all Americans.
These first-hand accounts go a long way in educating
