that is "the unified voice of the hardwood industry." American log and
wood exporters have been significantly pinched by the recent tariff war
between the U.S. and China. A Washington Post article said that wood
exports to China dropped by $700 million, or 42 percent. We have asked Dana
to explain the trade war, how it has impacted the
hardwood industry and how the industry can get back on track.

Conservation workshops for teachers
Ashley Smith is the Director of Education Programs for the
Forestry Association. Many students in Alabama suffer from the
lack of conservation education, which in turn, will create a shortage of
folks who do not understand the importance of working forests. The Alabama
Forestry Association is trying to change that with their annual Teachers
Conservation Workshop. This year, they are offering two workshops: one in
Tuscaloosa and one in Auburn. We feel that this is an important program that
forest landowners should support by recommending or by
sponsoring a teacher's tuition expenses.
