Kama Ross Wants You To Be A Forester In Your Own Backyard
By Emily Tyra
Forty-three percent of Leelanau's land is forest, and one of its primary protectors says that despite the current demand to clear land for residential development, the trees are still winning.
Kama Ross, district forester for the Leelanau, Grand Traverse, and Benzie Conservation Districts, explains that the greatest tree loss in the region is due to “what we call land conversion — turning beautiful woods into developments. And I get it that it sells, and it’s a commodity.”
But the good news for Leelanau: The volume of tree growth is still greater than volume harvested. “We are not running out of trees,” she says, “but the sad fact is that we lose more to insects and disease than we harvest.”
