The article provides information about Luis Torres, an environmentalist and a member of the board of the publication. The author states that Alfonso Chacon, a forest contractor, hires Torres because of his deep, multigenerational ties with the people and land of northern New Mexico. Chacon also recognizes Torres' ability to find his way through the often confusing world of land management agencies, grant-making and Anglo environmentalists. The author also shares his experiences with Torres who has been a community organizer since 1960's and has worked in community forestry in the late '80s. The author also mentions that Torres helped the Madera Products Association, which worked on developing a new forestry economy based on cutting small trees.
