Guest Post: (Re)Considering Planted Forests for the 21st Century

In the fall of 2022, the Forest School at the Yale School of the Environment and the Forests Dialogue hosted a webinar series on “(Re)Considering Planted Forests for the 21st Century.”

The series featured a wide range of experts, including TIG’s Chief Sustainability Officer, Mark Wishnie, who spoke about new opportunities for linking investment in commercial forestry with forest restoration (pp. 36-39). The series also included talks from speakers across academia, conservation nonprofits, the forest products industry, and Indigenous and forest-based communities, sharing various perspectives on the future of planted forests.
