Environmental Stewardship

Catchy slogans and feel-good mottos about taking care of our earth are sometimes just that: statements vs. real solutions that take into account a variety of factors that aim to unify society through sustainable practices, not pull sides further apart.

As a tree farmer, Marc knows firsthand that keeping a focus on effective environmental stewardship and forestry management should be holistic in nature and work from the bottom up—not just the top down with proclaimed policies that sound good, but aren’t realistic to implement without causing harmful unintended consequences. We need layered roll-outs of viable solutions to allow for policies that are practical to adopt, allow for in-process evaluation and an ability to make adjustments as needed.

It’s time to unite the public around sensible planetary policies, and push past the fear-mongering messaging to get down to sustainable and workable solutions for all Oregonians.
