Forestry that Works

by Peter Donovan

Forestry that Works is a 29-minute film on forest management, produced and filmed in Wallowa County, Oregon in 2005-06, that highlights some excellent examples of forest stewardship on private land, and points up the opportunity to apply this kind of stewardship to National Forests. Our U.S. National Forests make up 10 percent of our land base. They are operating at less than potential ecologically, economically, and socially. How can we change the incentives on federal land?

The film includes interviews with Bob Chadwick, Daniel Kemmis, Randal O'Toole, and many others on the incentives behind public land management. See the script.
