Hi everyone, and Happy New Year! I hope you all had fantastic holidays.
The new year is bringing some new changes here at American Forests, and one of them is that we have renamed our monthly e-newsletter, now called Forest Files. If you don't already receive this great newsletter, you can sign up at http://www.americanforests.org/engage/
Here are some highlights from the January issue of Forest Files:
