Podcast - Nick Long talks with VDOF forester, Andrew Brown
Listen to this episode
Nick Long, General Manager of WHLF 95.3 in South Boston Virginia, talks with Andrew Brown, Forester, Virginia Department of Forestry, about sustainable forestry practices that help landowners protect their land, gain top dollar for their trees (if they wish to timber), and protect clean drinking water---all at the same time. For instance, by using a consulting forester, landowners are more likely to get more for their timber and keep their land from washing down stream; stop pollution from getting into rivers; and provide wildlife habitat. Sound forestry practices make good economic sense. This podcast make possible with support from DRBA members, WHLF 95.3, Virginia Environmental Endowment, and Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation. This project also received funding from the Environmental Protection Agency's 319 Nonpoint Source Implementation Grant Program at the Virginia Department of Conservation (DCR), via grant number 319-2008-14-SR.
