Jim Noles Shares Thoughts on Key Environmental Issues at Alabama Forestry Association’s Annual Meeting

Barze Taylor Noles Lowther LLC partner Jim Noles addressed an audience of landowners, foresters, real estate and insurance professionals, attorneys, and accountants on September 9, 2018, at the annual meeting of the Alabama Forestry Association in Orange Beach, Alabama.

Noles’ topic was “An Update on Environmental Issues Facing Alabama’s Forestry Industry.” Such issues, according to Noles, included ongoing litigation involving Waters of the United States, key rulemakings associated with the Endangered Species Act, the pending dusky gopher frog case in the U.S. Supreme Court, and upcoming vacancies on the Alabama Environmental Management Commission.

This was Noles’ third time to speak at the Alabama Forestry Association’s annual meeting.
