The South Rises Again: Industrial Forest Management in Chile – Webinar
Dr. Susan Moore, Extension Associate Professor and Director, Forestry and Environmental Outreach Program, NC State University, will host “The South Rises Again: Industrial Forest Management in Chile,” August 4, 2009, as part of the Southern Forestry & Natural Resources Webinar Series.
The recent free trade agreement with Chile creates new opportunities and challenges for the US forestry and environmental sectors. Relative to the southeastern US, Chile is highly competitive in the plantation forestry sector, faces many parallel environmental concerns, and serves as a laboratory for technical and policy responses to water scarcity. Four expert speakers will provide insight into the forestry sector in Chile and the implications for lessons, opportunities, and global competition.

Department of Forestry and Environmental Resources, NC State University:
Lee Allen, Fred Cubbage, and Jose Alvarez
