Mr. Russell owns and operates a video and slide educational business
in Huntsville, Texas, but has long been involved in protecting national
forests and natural areas in east Texas from excessive logging, burning,
herbicide use, roadbuilding and other forms of development.
Not only has he been an active advocate for sustainable use and
protection of public lands, but Mr. Russell has also invested in
buying and protecting forestlands himself, using those private
lands to investigate less harmful ways of management.
