Forest Management for the Private Woodland Owner 8 week course: Starke County

March 7 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm


People own forests and woodlands for a variety of reasons; including wildlife viewing, hunting, recreation, and income from timber. However, poor management, invasive plants, insects, and diseases can threaten these activities. To help woodland owners, Purdue Extension is hosting a Forest Management for the Private Woodland Owner; this class will provide knowledge and resources to help landowners make informed decisions in the care and management of their forests.

Topics covered include tree identification, forest history and biology, forest management planning, forest management practices, considerations for selling timber, forest investment and taxation, wildlife habitat management, and resources and assistance for private woodland owners.
