Scott Landis

Scott Landis is the President at GreenWood Global. He began writing profiles of prospectors, fishermen and snowshoe makers–practitioners of the fading traditions of the Canadian north. He has been writing about woodworking and sustainable forest management for more than 30 years and is the author of The Workbench Book and The Workshop Book [Taunton Press, 1987 and 1991] and the editor of Conservation by Design [WARP and the Museum of Art, Rhode Island School of Design, 1993]. Scott founded the Woodworkers Alliance for Rainforest Protection (WARP), which inspired the certification movement and led to the establishment of the Forest Stewardship Council. He is the founder and president of GreenWood, which trains artisan woodworkers to produce high-quality products from well-managed forests and helps connect their products to good markets. GreenWood promotes appropriate woodworking technology and the efficient use of lesser-known and lower-value tree species, waste wood and non-timber forest products. It has developed training programs for artisan woodworkers in Honduras, Peru and Puerto Rico.
