We invite you to participate in the annual Society of American Foresters National Convention, which is the premier professional forestry and natural resources event in the United States. Honolulu, Hawaii, our host city provides an exciting backdrop for talking about the many — and often intricate — links between local, regional and global forest stewardship issues. Hawaii’s native forests represent one of the most remarkable natural assemblages on Earth, with nearly as many forest and woodland types as there are U.S. states, with 175 different species of native trees, many of which are found nowhere else in the world.

At the 2011 SAF Convention, we want to offer a program that appeals broadly to the Society's membership by highlighting cutting-edge forest-focused science delivered in a way that is interesting to scientists and accessible to forest managers. We want to promote both the science and practice of forest stewardship and conservation. Oral and poster presentations from diverse disciplines pique attendees' interest and provide learning and exchange opportunities for foresters and natural resource professionals in all sectors of forestry.

The Scientific and Technical Concurrent Sessions and the Poster Symposia are intended to showcase a wide range of projects and programs through presentations about current research and field trials, practical applications and innovations, education and outreach, and new ideas or results outside the mainstream of academia and forest practice.
