This Week In The Woods is the "positive voice" for forestry in Upper Michigan.
Each week a key person in Michigan forestry is featured during a twenty-minute interview. The interview is followed by a three-minute segment of forestry news. We wrap up the program with a two-minute "commentary" about an important forestry issue.
"This Week In The Woods" has won seven major state-wide awards from :
Michigan Association of Timbermen
Society of American Foresters
Menominee Farm Bureau
Michigan Farm Bureau
Michigan Forest Resource Alliance
Michigan State Co-operative Extension
Michigan Department of Natural Resources
