Presenters Abstract


 The Forest Industry Lecture Series (FILS) began and was developed as a collaborative event by members of the “forestry community” in Alberta to enrich the Forestry Program at the University of Alberta. 

The first Forest Industry Lecture was given in 1977 by the noted Canadian and internationally respected forester Dr. Ross Silversides, who spoke on Industrial forestry in a changing Canada. The University of Alberta and the Department of Renewable Resources deeply appreciate the support of its many sponsors.
