"With the aid of some unseasonably warm weather U.S. Congressman Antonio Delgado had his first tour of the forestry industry in New York State earlier this week. The Congressman's 19th District is comprised of all parts of the New York City Watershed west of the Hudson River, which supplies unfiltered drinking water to over 9 million New Yorkers. The Congressman's District is the third most forested district in the state and Congressman Delgado has shown significant interest in issues pertaining to his new district including consideration for joining the Congressional Working Forest Caucus.

This tour provided a great opportunity to show the Congressman just how vital our industry is to New York State. The forests of District 19 protect the watershed, 64 percent of which is privately owned. Our members discussed trade and tariff issues, invasive and endangered species and forest health, climate change and ecosystems benefits of forests and forest markets." - ESFPA
