Industry icon Frank Dottori is exiting the lumber business after naming his successor at WRC Timber (Tony Wyszkowski); and sadly, BC’s John Russell PhD, RPF—the world’s leading expert on western red and yellow cedars—has died. Other names making news include:

  • John Ackerly (Green Heat) on the conspiracy against wood stoves
  • Fan Williams (Architects’ Journal) on concrete’s unfortunate CO2 footprint
  • Lesli Allison (Western Landowners Alliance) on active management of US lands

Elsewhere: Nova Scotia improves trucking efficiency by allowing more B-trains; and home insurance is harder to find in Colorado due to wildfires.
