Growing High-Value Trees Free Workshops And Field Trips Showcase

Growing High-Value Trees Free Workshops And Field Trips Showcase

Uneven-Aged Management


Uneven-aged management permits woodlot owners to grow high-value trees while managing their woodlands for multiple species, ages, values and benefits. In Nova Scotia, financial assistance may be available to small private woodland owners through the Association for Sustainable Forestry’s Category 7 Quality Improvement Silviculture Program.

In order to provide small private woodlot owners and contractors with information about uneven-aged management and the Category 7 program, the Association for Sustainable Forestry’s Uneven-Aged Management Outreach Project is offering free workshops and field days throughout the province.

Each educational program will include a morning workshop followed by a visit to a nearby woodlot for a look at uneven-aged management as it is being practiced “on the ground”.

The schedule of these day-long events is as follows:
• May 3: Digby County, Richfield area
• May 10: Colchester County, Earltown area
• May 24: Queens County, North Brookfield area
• June 7: Victoria County, Middle River area
• June 14: Antigonish County, St. Joseph area

Space for these free programs is limited, and reservations are required. Nova Scotia woodlot owners and contractors are encouraged to register by calling the Outreach Project telephone number (902-673-2278) or emailing the project at outreach@asforestry.com.

The Uneven-Aged Management Outreach Project is funded by the Nova Scotia Department of Natural Resources.

Information about the Category 7 Quality Improvement Silviculture Program is available at http://www.asforestry.com/Category7program.htm or from the Uneven-Aged Management Outreach Project at 902-673-2278 or outreach@asforestry.com

Interesting… I might try some of this on my blog, too. It’s quite interesting how you sometimes stop being innovative and just go for an accepted solution without actually trying to improve it… you make a couple of good points.
