  • African American Landownership and Forestry in Georgia: Challeneges and Opportunities
    Forestry is often an appropriate land use choice for African American families, yet it is hindered by heirs’ property, lack of knowledge, and poor access to assistance. Based on qualitative and ethnographic research, we discuss the diverse situations, challenges, and opportunities for engagement in forestry faced by African American landowners. Presented by John Schelhas, USDA Forest Service, at the 2020 SAF National Virtual Convention.
  • Large-sample Forest Hydrology: Forest Inventory and Analysis Data Adds Value to Broad-scale Hydrology Datasets
    Forest Inventory and Analysis (FIA) data can be combined with existing large-sample hydrology datasets to illuminate how water resources respond to forest disturbances and dynamics. An example from dozens of watersheds across the western US illustrates the value of such broad-scale analyses for providing context to managers of forested watersheds. Presented by Sara Goeking, US Forest Service, at the 2020 SAF National Virtual Convention.
