Realignment and Reorganization Resolution

NASF members passed Resolution 2017-1 at their Annual Meeting this past week in Charleston, WV.  Resolution 2017-1 is a resolution passed for clarity. NASF and its members have had a long history of partnering with the U.S. Forest Service and does not wish to be realigned.   

As an organization, we realize that it is responsible for government to consider realignments and reorganization to improve efficiency. As an organization deeply enrooted and knowledgeable, we think it is essential for NASF to sit at the table for these talks if the new administration wishes to reorganize.

Resolution 2017-2 urges the national firewood packaging industry to continue to pursue a “clean” voluntary firewood certification program which includes federal recognition and an easily recognizable educational consumer label. As experience shows, even with federal inspection processes in place for past international and interstate commerce of wildlife and plant life, pests find their way into products either locally moved or internationally transported.
