Dovetail Signs onto Letter Supporting Pilot Certification Assessments on National Forests

03/01/2006

 

In 2005, the USDA Forest Service, in partnership with the Pinchot Institute for Conservation, announced plans for certification “pilot tests” on 7 National Forest units around the country. The purpose of the project is to provide the Forest Service with a greater understanding of the value and applicability of forest certification to the National Forest System. More information about this project is available from http://www.pinchot.org. In March, Dovetail Partners signed onto a letter to the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC-US) supporting the completion of these pilot assessments and a renewed effort to find workable solutions for engaging federal lands in certification opportunities.
