Melissa (mjkirkland) The United Nations General Assembly declared 2011 as the International Year of Forests to raise awareness on sustainable management, conservation and sustainable development of all types of forests.

Kirsten | 161 comments My sustainable forestry professor will be excited. Actually, I think she emailed me about this, but I distinctly recall skimming it. Oops.

It's really cool idea, though. Sustainable forestry practices have a lot of potential to do a lot of good.

Melissa (mjkirkland) I checked out the webpage and all of the related links. So far, not much had developed, but it is only the 6th day of the second month of the year. . so hopefully the page will continue to evolve with more information and events, etc.

Kirsten | 161 comments Yeah, that sounds about right for the UN, but it's still theoretically a good idea.
