Jargon in forestry webinar

April 15, 2021 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
New Jersey Forestry Association

Words matter. We all know this and we ignore this truism at our own peril.   We use specific words to communicate larger concepts within a discipline like forestry, and it becomes jargon.

The New Jersey Forestry Association will hold a 90 minute Backyard Forestry webinar s on Thursday, April 15th from 7 to 8:30 pm on “Jargon in forestry: Six loaded words, what they mean, and how that translates to your property”  by Jason Grabosky, Professor in Urban Forestry, Dept. of Ecology, Evolution, and Natural Resources.

The workshop will look at a few terms that seem to hit discussions in our community, some that can be quite vexing:

Afforestation                                  Reforestation

Resilience                                        Sustainability

Diversity                                          Proforestation

We’ll have a friendly chat on some of the implications these terms for individual folks with woodlands to small lots and yards to community organizers and even larger policy.
