Harvesting Trees For Your Own Use

Do you cut firewood or wood for your own use? This session will help you understand the process for selecting which trees
to cut and why. We will also look at how cutting trees for your own use can be compatible with other uses for your woodland
such as recreational trails and wildlife habitat.

The Language of Foresters: Connecting Their Words To Your Woods

Do you wonder what a forester means when they use certain words? Do you wonder whether you need to cut trees? Gain
an understanding of what is meant by thinning, selection harvest, group selection harvest, clear cut and shelterwood harvest.
Learn what each term means, when each is used, and what it will look like if a forester recommends it for your woodland.

People, Programs and Planning: Assistance with Your Woodlands

The creation of healthy woodlands 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

considering what is important to you, and learn what resources will be needed to make your vision a reality.
