Last Friday we had the pleasure of hosting a lecture by Cassie Phillips, Vice President for Sustainable Forestry at Weyerhaeuser. She spoke as part of this semester’s impromptu BCT lecture series “Building with Wood” and her talk presented a global view on sustainable forestry, covering issues like land use changes, forestry practices, and forest certification systems.
With a background in Forestry and Law, Cassie Phillips oversees Sustainable Forestry at Weyerhaeuser. Founded in 1900, Weyerhaeuser is a forest products company that has operations in 10 countries. The Company’s business segments are Timberlands, Wood Products, Cellulose Fibers, and Real Estate.
BCT would like to thank Ray Kinoshita Mann (Department of Architecture) for making this talk possible.
