Session 1 - People, Programs and Planning: Assistance with your Woodlands

May 10, 6-8 PM Marathon County UW-Extension office

The creation of a healthy woodland requires knowledge of forestry techniques, and the investment of time and money. This session will link you to the people, programs and organizations that offer technical and financial assistance for all aspects of your woodland.  We will also take you through the beginning steps of woodland management.  Start by considering what is important to you, and learn what resources will be needed to make your vision a reality.

Session 2 - Introduction to Timber Harvesting (includes a visit to an active timber sale)

May 17, 6-8 PM Location to be announced on May 15. If there is adverse weather on May 17, the class will be rescheduled for May 24 and the What's Damaging My Woods? will be held on May 17.

In this class, you will be introduced to the steps and timeline involved in conducting a successful timber sale, from identifying your goals to final closeout of your sale. This class will also provide guidance on which, if any, trees to harvest, how to select a logger, and why a timber sale contract is important.

Session 3 - What is Damaging My Woods?

May 24, 6-8 PM Marathon County UW-Extension office

A healthy woodland provides many benefits. Is your woodland healthy? Do you have injured or dying trees? Your woods may look fine, but how do you know if it’s healthy? This session will review insects, diseases, animals,
non-native invasive species, environmental factors and improper woodland management that can affect the health of your woods. You will leave knowing the signs and symptoms of sick trees and who to call if you have a concern.
