Presentation summary:
Removing invasive plants, promoting regeneration, and other practices top the needed activities for improving woodland health and function. For many landowners, there is sometimes difficulty in finding someone to do the improvement work—especially for owners of smaller acreages. Recently, the idea of small businesses generating products from small-diameter or poor quality wood has gained traction. This webinar will focus on new ways of think about getting work done in the woods, focusing on small business development around restorative forestry services and value-added products.

Presented by: Leslie Horner, Forest Stewardship Program Associate, Center for Private Forests at Penn State
