Family Foresters Workshop
January 24, 2020 @ 8:30 am - 5:00 pm$85
Family-owned forests are vital to the economy and quality of life in the Inland Northwest. These lands are critical for wildlife habitat, timber supply, water quality, and many other values. Unique skills are required of foresters and other natural resource professionals who help family forest owners manage their property. The Family Foresters Workshop is designed to strengthen the skills of consulting foresters, state-employed service foresters, and other natural resource professionals who work with family forest owners. It serves as a forum to provide updates on emerging technology and knowledge applicable to family forestry.
This year’s program will be held at the Coeur d’Alene Inn (Best Western Plus) in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, on Friday, January 24, 2020, and will include presentations on: Mass Timbers in the Inland Northwest; Non-Timber Benefits and Values Associated with Family Forests; Maximizing Water Yield from Inland Northwest Family Forests by Thinning; Mastication Tips; Choosing Reforestation Stock Types for Family Forests – Results from the Inland Northwest Stock Type Study; Turkey Habitat on Family Forests; and the annual family forest economics/policy update.
