Forest Management for the Private Landowner

A course entitled “Forest Management for the Private Woodland Owner” will be offered to assist private landowners in becoming more knowledgeable managers of their woodland resource.  The course will be held on 8 evenings beginning February 21, 2012, from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at the Sterling Christian Church Aid House, 109 North Eagle Street, Veedersburg, IN.  There will also be two Saturday morning field trips scheduled on March 3rd and 24th to practice tree identification and observe woodland management activities.

The course will emphasize an introduction to forestry and management principles that landowners can apply on their properties.  If you own woodland, sell timber occasionally, manage a tree plantation or wildlife, or are considering some woodland investment, this class may be of great benefit to you.  Beginning with the basics of tree identification and how a tree grows, the class will explore the biology and management of forest resources that supports the diverse environmental and economic benefits our forests provide, including thousands of jobs in the Indiana’s forest-based businesses.
