About the Authors

Susan Laszewski
Growing up in Vermont, Susan developed a natural affinity for all things dairy and maple and for the rolling red forests of fall in the Green Mountains.

“Since joining American Forests, I’ve enjoyed learning some of the science behind what I’ve always instinctually felt to be true — that we are happier and healthier when we can experience healthy natural ecosystems around us. It’s something every kid running through the park can feel.”

Susan joined the other tree-huggers at American Forests in 2012. When she’s not working, you’ll find her hiking the Shenandoahs, watching animals at the National Zoo or just enjoying a good book in the shade of a tree.

Alison Share — Crowell & Moring LLP‘s environmental public policy and torts associate joins the American Forests family on the fourth Tuesday each month to provide a legal perspective on new environmental policy, court decisions and laws.

Scott Steen — American Forests’ CEO appears occasionally to share information on American Forests’ work, important policy or other environmental news.
