Assessing Storm Damaged Pine Stands webinar

September 15, 2021 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm
Southern Regional Extension Forestry

Southern Regional Extension Forestry will hold a one-hour Assessing Storm Damaged Pine Stands webinar on September 15th from 1 to 2 pm EDT.

The ongoing climate crisis has led to an increase in extreme weather events like hurricanes and tornadoes in the southeastern U.S. Hurricanes cause extensive damage to forest stands from high winds and floods resulting from the heavy rains that accompany them. Hurricanes and tornadoes stress, damage, or kill trees by uprooting, breaking, bending, leaning, wounding, and flooding stands.

This webinar by Dr. David Dickens from the University of Georgia will provide landowners with assessment tools, preventative action strategies and management plans to mitigate long term consequences and facilitate recovery.

This webinar will cover such questions as:

  • What kind of storm damage do individual pines and pine stands sustain?
  • What are the ecological impacts of this damage?
  • What management strategies are available?
