Presentation summary:
Forestry today is faced with a host of new impacts: climate change, invasive species, introduced pests and a landscape over run by deer. Yet, in many ways we manage forests with the same philosophy and process that was used 50 years ago. Join us for a review of progressive practices including: expanding gap openings, high frequency thinnings, understory development and logging with horses.

Presented by: Annie Socci, PhD, Executive Director, The Foundation for Sustainable Forests, and Guy Dunkle, Forester, The Foundation for Sustainable Forests
