Great leaders in forestry are not born. They are coached. With our Mentorship Programme in North America, senior foresters seed the next generation of Sappi leaders to work at the vanguard of sustainable forestry.
At Sappi, we believe that the right approach when managing timber is to integrate forest management–especially timber harvesting–into the local culture by sharing information and collaborating with local communities and the public, as showcased in these three coastal Maine harvests.
