Interview Results Summary Report to the American Forest Foundation(AFF)
With funding provided by the Innovation Finance for National Forests (IFNF) Grant awarded by the U.S. Endowment in 2019, the goal of this project is to assess the feasibility of an outcomes-based financial model to support the restoration work needed to ensure a sustainable white oak supply in the future. Interviews were conducted with a subset of White Oak Initiative (WOI) partners in August 2021 to gain further insights and perspectives of stakeholders involved with the Initiative. Interviewees represented a diverse array of expertise and geographical representation, and individuals with knowledge and experience related to silvicultural, social, and financial aspects of white oak management and family forest lands.
