Noles Speaks At Alabama Forestry Asociation's Annual Meeting

BTNL partner Jim Noles participated yesterday in the Alabama Forestry Association’s Public Policy Seminar “Landowner Issues” as part of the Association’s annual meeting at Orange Beach, Alabama. Joined by fellow attorney Brandon Essig, who practices with the law firm of Lightfoot Franklin & White, Noles spoke on the topic “The Life and Death of a Lawsuit.”

Noles’ practice includes assisting clients with compliance with such federal statutes as the Endangered Species Act and Section 404 of the Clean Water Act – two regulatory regimes of critical importance to the forestry industry in Alabama and the membership of the Alabama Forestry Association.

The Alabama Forestry Association was formed in 1949 to represent the interests of Alabama’s sawmill companies and soon expanded to include forestry members from the stump to the mill. Today, AFA is a membership organization comprised of forest product companies, landowners, loggers, wood suppliers, foresters, and others with a stake in Alabama’s forest economy.
