Gaining Ground: What Some Recent Wins Tell Us About the Trajectory of Property Rights Work for Private Forest Landowners

Candidate Donald Trump generated incredible momentum in the primaries and general election by promising to attack the culture of over-regulation that overtaken federal policy once elected. Now, two years into his administration private forest landowners are beginning to see those commitments impact their operations. Focusing primarily on the preservation of property rights, this panel will look at some recent legal wins the sector has had under the Trump administration and the work yet to be done to free private forest landowners from the encumbrances created by the misguided application of federal policies like the Endangered Species Act.
