Abstract: 

The goal of Forestinfo.org is to be a leading source of information on natural resource issues and options. We are committed to educating the public about sustainable forest resources and their effect on people and quality of life. We feel that the most effective way to do that is to educate the teachers who will be teaching future generations of citizens, voters, and policy makers to make informed decisions about sustainable forestry issues.
