Join us on Friday, May 17th at 11:30 a.m. EDT for an exciting event in celebration of the 5th Annual Woodlands Appreciation Week.

Ethan Tapper is a forester and author from Vermont. His first book -- How to Love a Forest -- comes out in September 2024, and has been endorsed by noted authors such as Bill McKibben, Doug Tallamy and Ben Goldfarb. 

Since 2016, Ethan has worked as Vermont's Chittenden County Forester, managing thousands of acres of community forests, leading hundreds of public events, and advising thousands of landowners, municipalities, conservation organizations, and other stakeholders. In this role, Ethan has received numerous awards and distinctions, including being named Forester of the Year by the Northeast-Midwest State Foresters Alliance in 2021 and the American Tree Farm System's National Forester of the Year in 2024. In 2024, Ethan left this role to start his own consulting forestry company -- Bear Island Forestry -- which will provide consulting forestry services to landowners, consulting services to companies, non-profits and government agencies, and conservation education. Ethan is very active on Instagram, TikTok, and YouTube -- using the handle @HowToLoveAForest -- and in his spare time, he manages his 175-acre forest and homestead, goes birding, and plays in a ten-piece punk band.

Only those who love trees should cut them, writes forester Ethan Tapper. In How to Love a Forest, he asks: what does it mean to live in a time in which ecosystems are in retreat and extinctions rattle the bones of the earth? How do we respond to the harmful legacies of the past? How do we use our species' incredible power to heal rather than to harm? How do we reach towards a better future?
