Woods to Mill

We were fortunate to hold our Southcentral Region Spring Meeting in Alexandria, Louisiana before the enormity of the Coronavirus Pandemic was better understood.
Many years ago, the wood procurement manager of a North Carolina wood chip mill passed out ball caps that had no logo on them. The hats displayed only the words “No Chips” on the top line and “No Toilet Paper” on the bottom line.
Soon after the announcement by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to release 35,000 supplemental H-2B visas, the COVID-19 virus placed a grip on the world.
It is always a hit with FRA members when two regions come together for a joint meeting. This October’s Southeastern and Southcentral Region Policy Committee Meeting, combined with a Southwide Timber Security Group Meeting, was no exception.
