Finch Paper unveils two new website elements
Tuesday, November 03, 2009
Press release from the issuing company
In continuing its mission to educate the public about responsible forestry practices, Finch Paper (NY) today announces the unveiling of two new exciting website elements: the Finch in the Forest educational blog and a Q&A page spearheaded by one of Finch Paper's professional foresters, Vice President & Senior Forester Roger Dziengeleski.
Intriguing Insight from a Senior Forester
Updated frequently, the new Finch in the Forest blogosphere is an engaging forum that was established to help reduce the complexity surrounding "green" paper choices. Roger will author a variety of articles and thought-provoking pieces that talk about latest industry trends, statistics and practices based on his years of experience with his "feet in the forest" – a phrase proudly used by Finch Paper, as the company is one of very few paper mills that still manage their own forests today.
Roger leads Finch Paper's consulting forestry service, helping private and public landowners improve their responsible management of their forest. The Finch in the Forest Blog is a way for Roger, with his extensive technical background, to educate those unfamiliar with the mill's traditions and practices that date back over one hundred years.
Interactive Q&A Forum
The interactive Question & Answer portion of Finch Paper's website is a place for Finch Professional Foresters to lend their expertise in sustainable, science-based forest management to landowners, including The Nature Conservancy. Anyone from the general public can ask, and access, questions for free and at anytime.
About Roger Dziengeleski
Vice President & Senior Finch Forester Roger Dziengeleski oversaw forest management for Finch Paper's 160,000 acres of Adirondack forestland for 16 years prior to the sale of those lands to The Nature Conservancy in 2007, including the certification of those lands under both the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) and Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI) responsible forestry programs.
A past recipient of the New York State Society of American Foresters' Forester of the Year Award, Roger joined Finch Paper in 1978 after earning his bachelor's degree in forest management from the University of Maine and serving four years with the United States Air Force. He is active in forestry-related issues on a state and national basis and holds leadership positions with the Society of American Foresters, the Empire State Forest Products and many other organizations.
