Forestry Frustration

The state board of forestry wrapped up a 2 day meeting in Fairbanks yesterday (Weds).  The agenda included updates on timber harvest and reforestation, wood energy, agency budgets and an overview of the 2013 wildfire season. As KUAC’s Dan Bross reports, there was also a lot of discussion of federal management policies, some members criticized for holding up logging in national forests. 

Dan has been in public radio news in Alaska since 1993. He’s worked as a reporter, newscaster and talk show host at stations in McGrath, Valdez and Fairbanks. Dan’s experience includes coverage of a wide range of topics, from wolf control to the Trans-Alaska Pipeline and dog mushing.
