SAF and State Foresters Team up to Support Jim Hubbard
June 19, 2018
SAF and the National Association of State Foresters (NASF) sent a joint letter to the United States Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition, and Forestry supporting the expedited confirmation of Jim Hubbard as the undersecretary of the Natural Resources and Environment mission area within the United States Department of Agriculture.
"Throughout his long and distinguished career in forestry, Mr. Hubbard has championed active and collaborative forest management on both public and private lands. He not only understands the many challenges facing the Forest Service, but also understands that working forests are key to meeting many of our nation’s most pressing social, environmental, and economic needs. His 20 years of experience as Colorado’s state forester, combined with ten years serving as deputy chief of State and Private Forestry, make him uniquely qualified for this critical undersecretary role."
