America’s Forests with Chuck Leavell aired its first episode this past April. Rock and Roll fans may recognize Chuck Leavell’s name; he’s been a keyboardist for the Rolling Stones for many years. He’s also a tree farmer and a big fan of National Forests.

The first episode offers an in-depth look into Oregon’s forests and the next episode will feature Colorado’s forests and recreation opportunities. Choose Outdoors, which runs the Capitol Christmas Tree tour (see Your National Forests, Winter-Spring 2017 for a story about the tree), is a leading partner in America’s Forests with Chuck Leavell.
