Collaboration

The Council of Western State Foresters (CWSF) is seeking proposals from qualified parties to complete an international wood energy market analysis. With a clearly defined, positive relationship between forest utilization, forest health, rural communities, wildfire mitigation, and forest-based economies, the analysis will provide CWSF with a picture of current opportunities presented by international wood energy markets; and provide a technical review of technology and infrastructure domestically available to support engagement in these markets. 

CWSF was recently featured in the Summer 2016 edition of the National Woodland Owners Association Magazine.

CWSF Legislative and Policy Update

The latest CWSF Legislative and Policy Update was published in late April 2016 and provides information on issues of importance to our members. Please note that the update highlights only a selection of the issues the CWSF is monitoring.

Collaborative Restoration Workshop

The Council of Western State Foresters (CWSF) is seeking proposals from qualified parties to analyze and synthesize the work that the Western states and Pacific islands are currently undertaking on issues related to the changing climate. The end result of this project will be a report that the CWSF members can use to find out about other states’ work on this important issue and that the CWSF staff can use to inform policy and programmatic work. 

The second quarter of the year has just begun, but CWSF has already held a number of productive meetings with different groups of Western forestry stakeholders.
