Conservation Training

Alternative Pine Management

September 15, 2021

1:00 pm – 4:30 pm
Location: Online

Join a panel of experts in a discussion on alternative strategies for managing pines. Through a combination of presentations, virtual site tours, and a roundtable discussion we'll cover early and late rotation management for structural and compositional diversity on large and small scale pine forests. Specifically, the workshop will address:

  • Ecology and dynamics of pine systems
  • Early rotation management including variable density thinning and logger selection
  • Later rotation management to emulate natural disturbance regimes
  • Forest health considerations including heterobasidion, shoot blight, armillaria, and climate change
  • Application of these methods via case studies and drone footage
