Jim Arney was the President of the Institute and the sole developer and guiding visionary for the Forest Projection System or FPS software. He dedicated 30 years of his career to writing a growth and yield model to help foresters make decisions about their forest resources. For Jim FPS was the culmination of a lifetime of work, a lifetime of professional commitment, and a lifetime of friendships. Jim passed away in June 2021 and all of us at FBRI miss him tremendously. He was our leader, our mentor, and most importantly, our friend. This video is a dedication to a pillar within the forestry community.
