Overview: The goal of the workshop is to help landowners understand and protect their forests by creating a Forest Management Plan. The workshop will cover:
• Forest management objectives and planning
• Forest health, insects and disease
• Forest and fire ecology, wildlife, watersheds
• Fuels reduction and forest resource marketing
• Mapping, inventory and silviculture
• Project development & permitting
• Getting professional help and cost-share opportunities
Days one and two will consist of classroom and forest-based instruction on ecological concepts and measurement skills. After a week’s break to collect information on their own property, participants will return for day three to write up their management plans. Participants who develop their plans will be eligible for a free visit by a Registered Professional Forester to assess its content.
