A path forward: understanding and restoring degraded hardwood stands (webinar)
September 22, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 1:30 pm
September 22, 2021
11:00 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. ET
2 Category 1 Continuing Education Credits through the Society of American Foresters
This webinar will explore the complexities of forest degradation as result of poor forest management planning. We will gain a basic understanding of land-use history as it pertains to forest degradation and how misconceptions of forest ecology have led to poor land management practices. Then, we will learn how forest products markets (or lack thereof) can perpetuate the mismanagement of forest resources. Once we grasp these basic concepts, we will learn from applied research on conditions of degraded forests and what we can do to restore them.
