Foresters from all across the country were at Glenville State College on Thursday to talk about the most current forestry issues that could affect everyone.

They were there for the winter meeting of the Society of American Foresters. Topics included surveying problems, tree diseases and legal issues. While you may think these things don't affect you, those involved said, think again.
 
"They do not realize that it's the agent that cleans the air, produces oxygen that we all need and we sort of take it for granted that it's there when we need it," said Charles R. Sypolt, GSC Professor of Land Surveying and Forestry.
 
"It's our duty to be able to withdraw natural resources, the forest products, in a responsible manner, so that future generations may also have that product," said Aaron Holley, President of the WVU Student Chapter of the Society of Foresters.

Holley was part of a group of WVU students who actually got to go to the national conference earlier this year. They talked about their experiences there at the conference at GSC.
