ABOUT

"A nation that destroys its soil destroys itself."

- Franklin D. Roosevelt, 1937

"There can be no life without soil and no soil without life; they have evolved together."

- Charles E. Kellogg, 1938

The Northwest Forest Soils Council (NWFSC) was established in 1949 to tackle management concerns with forest soils. NWFSC is a council of the Western Forestry and Conservation Association.

 

The council is organized to facilitate exchange of forest soils information and ideas among interested professionals in the Northwest, and encourage a more widespread understanding that soil is the basis for production of forest wealth -- timber, forage, water, wildlife, and recreation values.

 

Any person attending Council meetings and interested in advancing and using soils knowledge shall, upon payment of dues, be a member in good standing with full privileges. Membership includes representatives of public, private and educational organizations from the northwestern United States and Canada.
