What is sustainable forestry and how does it affect our region environmentally and economically? This lecture organized by the James River Green Building Council Charlottesville Division
will answer that question and many others as part of a series of lectures dealing with the LEED Green Building Rating System.
We have assembled three speakers who together give a very balanced view of the issue.
|Completing our lecture on sustainable forestry is Mr. Charlie Becker from the Virginia Department of Forestry. Mr. Becker draws from over 20 years of experience to give an overview of forestry practices in Virginia. He also discusses how forest certification programs such as FSC uniquely affect Virginia landowners.
