Bob Perschel, Executive Director of the New England Forestry Foundation, runs a non-profit that manages over 140 forests. Until speaking to him, I never really understood the issues with managing our woodlands. And, I totally did not see the huge economic and environmental opportunities for our planet. Did you know there are plans to build a 50 story skyscraper out of wood? Did you know that if we used wood for construction in the North East instead of steel and concrete, we could neutralize the carbon emissions of every car in New England? Bob gave me such an amazing education about the many aspects of the wood world. I hope you enjoy and get as much out of it as I did.
