ATFS Announces Annual National Awards

	

The American Tree Farm System (ATFS)
recognizes Ed Mignery for his ongoing
leadership and engagement with forest
landowners, and Bob Obedzinski for his
continued commitment to providing forestry
advice and assistance to family forest owners.

The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the U.S.
forestry industry and American family woodland
owners. Both are working to balance economic stress
and industry demand while still continuing to manage
our nation's forestland.

than 5 million acres of longleaf pine.

its versatility and uses. But while global demand is
increasing yearly, supply is declining, and tree farmers
across the state are on a mission to regenerate white
oak throughout the state.
