A variety of factors have contributed to the loss of oak habitats. The loss of deciduous oak woodlands to native conifer encroachment is a major concern in northwestern California, resulting in losses of wildlife habitat, cultural uses, biodiversity, and other ecosystem services.  This workshop will provide landowners and resource professionals with the latest information about treatment techniques, including the use of prescribed fire and manual removal of conifers.  The first half of the day will be spent in the classroom at the Rod Shippey Hall, followed by lunch and carpooling to field sites on the property to view and discuss conifer encroachment.
