Webinar: Dead Wood and Forest Management
January 28, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Dr. Zander Evans will presented a summary of ten years of the Forest Stewards Guild’s scientific work and management guidance on dead wood (snags, large downed logs, coarse woody material, fine woody material) from the Pacific Northwest to the Southeast. Dr. Evans described the habitat, soil, carbon, and other benefits of dead wood. He touched on guidance for retention of dead wood in a range of ecosystems. The second half was a facilitated discussion with participants about how to include dead wood in forest management operations.
