This issue of Forest Voice, a publication of the Native Forest Council, provides an annual report, outlines its goals, and highlights its successes in advancing a Zero-Cut policy on public lands, even resulting in support from a majority of Sierra Club members. Bill Willers address timber industry influence on U.S. public schools. A feature article spotlights a referendum to limit clearcutting in Maine. 

One of the enduring strengths of this non-profit is the support of people who share a common vision. Together we have built an organization on the premise that the integrity of native forest ecosystems could be preserved without compromising people or forests. For eight years, it has been our privilege to serve at the pleasure of our members and benefactors. So, it is proper that we regularly answer the question “what have we done?” and it is with gratitude and pride that I do so now.
