Old forests, with their abundant downed deadwood, multiple canopy layers, and variation in tree densities and sizes, are different than our second growth forests. These differences have important implications for forest benefits such as wildlife habitat and climate change mitigation, but old forests are rare in our landscape.
On Wednesday, June 15th from 9:00 to 10:00 a.m., join Dr. Tony D’Amato (University of Vermont) and Paul Catanzaro (University of Massachusetts) to learn about both active and passive strategies to encourage old forest characteristics.
This webinar is designed for professional foresters, ecologists, forest landowners, and local conservation leaders.
Continuing education credit will be available for foresters. The webinar will be recorded.
This webinar is being sponsored by Vermont Land Trust, Vermont Dept. of Forests, Parks, and Recreation, University of Vermont, and University of Massachusetts
