Attention Landowners! Are you a new or existing forest landowner wishing to know more about your trees from tree identification to improvement techniques within your forest? Each spring Virginia Cooperative Extension offers one-day short courses on management options for your timberland. Learn what you should know about thinning a stand of timber for the benefits of stand health, profit, wildlife and overall satisfaction. A new topic this year is an update on our forest inventory as it pertains to harvest versus supply, a must know for future planning of our forests.
Class size is limited to the first 25 registrants so register early!
What? Venture Outdoors landowner education programs will showcase timber stand improvement, invasive plant species management, wildlife and your woods, and Virginia’s Forest Inventory update.
