Please join us on July 20th for a workshop on silvicultural strategies for climate change adaptation and mitigation being co-hosted by Julia Burton (silviculturist at Michigan Tech), Rexx Janowiak (Green Timber) and Stephen Handler and Maria Janowiak (USDA Forest Service Northern Institute of Applied Climate Science). We’re inviting a diverse group of foresters from federal, state, private and tribal organizations to help us develop a range of approaches.
Our goals are to:
- Gather information and share ideas on climate change risk and adaptation in northern hardwoods,
- Develop preliminary prescriptions for a silvicultural experiment at the MTU Ford Forest,
- Include lunch and a field trip to the experimental site.
