Summary: ABSTRACT:
Shortly after moving to Prince George in 1993 as
the chair of UNBC's new Forestry Program, Wini
Kessler was invited to speak on "What I See in
Forestry's Crystal Ball." Among her broad predic-
tions were: The importance of products that come
from forests will increase. Increasingly, forests will be
valued for more than the sum of their products and uses.
There will be better appreciation of forests as complex
ecological systems that are controlled by forces bigger
than we humans. Have these trends and predictions
come to pass? In general they certainly have,
and also in specific and hugely important ways that
we had not imagined at the time. In this lecture
Dr. Kessler will revisit forestry's crystal ball to
discuss major developments of the past 15 years
that are shaping the view of forestry's future.
