March 7th – Wildlife considerations when restoring oak/pine woodlands

Join this webinar to learn more about ways to restore oak/pine woodlands and improve wildlife habitat. The influence of sunlight, overstory retention levels, fire, and vegetation structure and composition will be discussed to improve habitat for a variety of wildlife species when restoring oak/pine woodlands.

March 14th –  Establishing and Managing Open Pine-Hardwood Stands

Pine-hardwood forest types are common throughout much of the Southeast, but these forest types are rarely intentionally managed by landowners and professionals. These forest types can meet a variety of landowner objectives and can be managed in several ways on suitable sites. Intentional establishment of pine-hardwood mixtures in the Southeast can be accomplished through even-aged and two-aged management practices. Some examples of how to do so will be covered. Learn more about the recommended approaches in this webinar.

This webinar series is part of the Woodland Stewards regional extension program for landowners. Created by a team of forestry Extension professionals from 10 programs, the USFS, and more. This is the fourth season of the Woodland Stewards series.
