Penn State Extension will hold two one-hour Crop Tree Management at the Perkey Tree Farm webinars on Tuesday, May 14th, at noon and 7 pm.

Arlyn Perkey, retired US Forest Service Silviculturist and author of “Crop Tree Management in Eastern Hardwoods” and “Crop Tree Field Guide – Selecting and Managing Crop Trees in the Central Appalachians” will share his insights and knowledge following nearly 3 decades of crop tree management research and practical application on his own property in SW Pennsylvania.

Photos taken at the Pennsylvania Tree Farm of the Year Field Day, May 2018, along with “before” photos will be used to describe his applications and results in stands where crop tree management has been practiced over the past 27 years.

In addition, Arlyn will discuss how invasive species have required additional prior and post-treatments he did not envision at the time of publication.
