A Path Forward: Understanding and Restoring Degraded Forests

September 22, 2021

10:00 am – 12:30 pm
Location: Online

This webinar will explore the complexities of forest degradation due to poor forest management and planning. We will gain a basic understanding of land-use history as it pertains to forest degradation and how misconceptions of forest ecology have led to poor forest management. Then we will learn how forest products markets (or lack thereof) play a key role in perpetuating poor forest management. Once we grasp these basic concepts, we will then explore applied research on how to restore and manage degraded hardwood forests moving forward.
