What Does A Regional Forester Do? Region One Forester Leanne Marten Explains

Home Ground Radio with Brian Kahn
Home Ground Radio with Brian Kahn

Historically the beneficiaries of Forest Service lands often disagree about how they should be used. Should we increase or decrease timber harvest and why. Open more roads or close some we put it in in past years? Add Wilderness or not? The hot seat for many of those issues is the Regional Forester in Region One based in Missoula Montana. Leanne Marten is the guest on "Home Ground" this week.

The U. S. Forest Service is a major player in Montana, providing stewardship for 15 million acres of land which in turn provide multifaceted economic benefits, environmental health and treasured recreation to hundreds of thousands of Montanans and other citizens of this country.
