“It really fills me with hope when we have organizations like the Pacific Forest Trust and a roomful of people like you who are dedicated to our forests. I believe if we understand forest ecosystems and fully understand their complexity and beauty, we will do the right thing.”
—Jerry Franklin, Ph.D., Prof. of Forest Ecology, University of Washington
