DescriptionThis introductory paper highlights some of the changes in redwood region land ownership, markets and infrastructure to help contextualize the dynamic nature of the forest industry in California and to help set the stage for a management and policy dialog among symposia participants. Twenty years have passed from the first redwood symposium in 1996 and with this so too have the conservation and management issues changed among regional stakeholders. Through 70 talks delivered in plenary and concurrent sessions, a poster session, and four field trip choices, session participants had the opportunity to learn more about how forests are managed today, gain an enhanced understanding of scientific advancements, and see first-hand some of the changes in both private and public forest land management. This paper reflects the conference organizer’s personal observations and available regional data.
