Penn State Extension will hold two one-hour webinars on March 12th at noon and 7 p.m. on Using Expanding Gaps and Low-Intensity/High-Frequency Thinnings to Create Vibrant, Resilient Hardwood Forests
Forestry today is faced with a host of new threats: climate change, invasive species, introduced pests and a landscape over run by deer. Yet, in many ways we manage forests with the same philosophy and process that was used 50 years ago.
In these webinars, Annie Socci and Guy Dunkle from the Foundation for Sustainable Forests will review progressive practices for improving hardwood forest, including: expanding gap openings, high frequency thinnings, understory development and logging with horses.
