Ecological Forestry 101: Intro to Silviculture and Wildlife

Forestry Events - Sun, 05/29/2016 - 2:44pm
Saturday, June 4, 2016 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM

With careful stewardship, forests can be perpetually managed on a regenerative cycle that allows for multiple entries and a sustained yield of a broad range of high-value forest products. The timing and design of thinning practices can result in a wide variety of forest conditions depending on the landowners’ objectives—including those that benefit wildlife habitat, forest health, and long-term income generation.

This workshop will introduce you to the principles of ecological forestry as well as tools to implement it successfully on smaller parcels. Learn about harvest management strategies and how they relate to wildlife habitat.

All woodland owners are encouraged to attend!
