Pacific Northwest Timberlands Management - Portland, OR


Pacific Northwest Timberlands Management

April 17 & 18, 2014

Portland, OR

The Pacific Northwest Timberlands Management seminar provides continuing legal education within the broader context of market conditions, management issues, and emerging opportunities for owners and managers of timberlands. 

Participants can expect to learn about the latest legal issues and authorities affecting timberlands, but with a strong dose of information on business and social issues that will be of interest to attorneys and non-attorneys alike. Although the forest products industry is one of the oldest industries in the Pacific Northwest, it continues to offer new issues and opportunities for learning in law, business, and policy.
