  1. Morse has done extensive study of forest management in her forums with local members of the mountain communities in all 10 counties in CD4, and has a deep understanding of the sustainable forest management practices needed to return our forests to healthy, well-managed resources. Healthy forest provide healthy ecosystems. I have confidence she will work with all concerned parties to develop well-reasoned practices that are fair to all concerned, regardless of party. Great appointment!
