Bob Zahner's Passing

   An icon of old growth forest identification and preservation has passed - my long time acquaintenance and friend Dr. Robert Zahner. I will soon write some words into the ENTS record describing the immense contribution that Bob made to old growth awareness. I am deeply saddened at his passing.

An excerpt from his book, which I highly recommend to ENTS, esp those living
in the Southern Apps.:

An article on how we should honor him by honoring the land:
