Session 1 – Woodland Management:  What is Right for you and your woodland?

Managing your woodlands to grow healthy forests and produce revenue depends on making the right choices for your location. This session will help woodland owners to understand how stand dynamics and market considerations are used in the application of management.

Session 2 – Understanding the Financial Aspects of Woodland Management

This session provides an overview of financial factors that affect your woodland management such as when to re-plant, when to thin, when to harvest, when to use cost-share programs, and more.

Session 3 – More than Timber:  Income Opportunities from non-timber forest products

There are a range of possibilities to generate income from your woodlands that depend on your location, forest type and more, that are compatible with timber management too. In this session, learn more about the opportunities to generate income from your woodlands.

Session 4 – Launching your Woodland Legacy:  Intact, in forest and in family

Most woodland owners cite legacy as one of their main reasons for owning land, and a large majority express concern over their ability to keep the land intact. This session is designed to help you find the best way to pass this legacy intact to your heirs
