Managing Your Woodlands


February 28, 2019, 7-9 PM Eastern

Today's Southern forests range from natural stands of hardwood, and pine to planted pines and even hardwoods from the mountains of Missouri and Virginia to the swamps of Louisiana and Florida. Landowners attending this session will learn the basics on pine and hardwood management. Topics covered include:

  1. Growing and managing southern pines, to include site selection and preparation, ecological requirements, regeneration methods, intermediate management, and tips for final harvest.
  2. Basic characteristics of existing hardwood stands, evaluation methods to assess existing hardwood stand management potential, and making basic decisions on future management.
  3. How to identify degraded hardwood stands, determine acceptable growing stock, and assess options available and tradeoffs to make degraded hardwood stand more desirable, profitable and sustainable.
