Episode 12: Eric Schenck

In Episode 12, Eli talks with Eric Schenck, Executive Director of the Minnesota Forest Resources Council . The MFRC advises the governor on forest policy matters, and Eric is in a great position to discuss the state of Minnesota's forests from a policy and economic perspective. As the Council nears its 25th anniversary, Eric discusses the Council's role and prospects for the future of forestry in Minnesota. We also address the Council's structure and major programs, resilience of Minnesota's wood products industry, and the state of the logging and trucking workforce. Music by Marshall Usinger.
