The people of Oregon are embracing new ways of engaging with the woods all around them. In Portland, they're building skyscrapers from timber. In Bend, they're fighting fire with fire. And on the Siuslaw National Forest, they're bringing back the salmon and making the forests healthier at the same time.
Rolling Stones keyboardist Chuck Leavell combines two of his passions - music and trees - to bring stories of sustainable forestry to the public on a new series, "America's Forests with Chuck Leavell." The series celebrates how forest habitats enhance the well-being and economic health of communities across the country. From architects to artists, from climbers to carpenters, each episode shines a light on individuals and their love and concern for the woods around them.
