Op-ed Slams Forestry Provisions in House Farm Bill

For a clear-eyed analysis of the threats to our national forests posed by disastrous provisions in the House version of the 2018 Farm Bill, check out this op-ed, published today on the news website, The Hill. The piece is penned by Jerry Franklin and Norm Christensen, two influential, longtime forestry professors.

Franklin and Christensen write that the House version “would seriously damage our national forests and reduce Americans’ say in how these forests are managed.”

Meanwhile, the Senate’s version of the Farm Bill is neutral on national forest issues.
