Seth Zuckerman: A Forest of Your Own: The Pacific Northwest Handbook of Ecological Forestry

Tuesday, June 4th at 7 pm, we welcome Seth Zuckerman to talk about his new book, A Forest of Your Own: The Pacific Northwest Handbook of Ecological Forestry, co-written by Kirk Hanson.

Throughout Oregon and Washington there are several hundred thousand family forest owners, in addition to millions of forest acres under the care of community forests, municipalities, and Indigenous tribes, all of whom manage trees for sustainable wood harvest as well as recreation, inspiration, and a range of cultural connections. Yet there hasn’t been a complete resource for Pacific Northwest forest stewards until now.

In this comprehensive how-to, authors Kirk Hanson and Seth Zuckerman explore all aspects of forest management—everything from how to evaluate a piece of land before you buy it through implementing long-term plans that may include establishing new stands of trees, harvesting mushrooms as well as wood, and protecting your forests far into the future through wildfire risk reduction, climate change adaptation, and conservation easements. Loaded with helpful tables and illustrations that address the pros and cons of various species and how to best care for wildlife and the land, A Forest of Your Own is a clear guide to the many rewards of ecological forestry.

Seth Zuckerman is a strategist, writer, and doer with roots in northern California, now living in the Puget Sound region.

Since 2017, Seth has served as executive director of the Northwest Natural Resource Group, a Seattle-based nonprofit that promotes ecological forestry in the Pacific Northwest.
