10 Lower Pine Bottom Rd. Waterville
Forests cover nearly 60% of Pennsylvania, almost 17 million acres. Sustainable forestry practices allow us to meet the needs of the present while preserving options for future generations. Sustaining forests for continued future benefits is dependent upon whether they receive proper management. It is our responsibility to provide healthy sustainable forests for the future.
Penn State Extension will hold a Sustainable Timber Harvesting workshop on October 26th from 8 am to 4 pm at the Tiadaghton State Forest Office in Waterville, PA
The Sustainable Timber Harvesting event is intended to give participants the knowledge and tools they need to assess, or work with a natural resource professional to assess, whether a proposed timber harvest meets sustainability guidelines. This is an opportunity to have your questions answered by forestry professionals who have experience managing forest resources.
- This training will strengthen participants knowledge and understanding of sustainable forest management.
- It will teach participants how to assess whether a proposed timber harvest will sustain desired forest conditions for future generations.
- It will improve communication between woodland owners and forestry professionals.
Cost of this workshop is $10
