America’s First Forest explores how, at a critical time, an extraordinary group of men converged at the magnificent Biltmore Estate in Asheville, North Carolina, to address a critical question: Could the Scientific Revolution stop the Industrial Revolution from destroying America’s forests? By introducing scientific forest management to America and establishing the Biltmore Forest School – the nation’s first forestry school – German forester Carl Schenck helped launch the American conservation movement. The Forest History Society – producer of the film – is allowing for special screening in cooperation with Society of American Foresters and the Agroforestry Resource Center.
