 Purdue to Host Forest Management Class

 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.

The Class will be held at the Purdue Extension Starke County Office (108 N. Pearl Street, Knox IN 46534) on Thursday evenings from March 7 to May 2 (excluding March 28) from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. CT. There will be two Saturday field tours to local forests as well.

Registration cost is $50 per person and includes: in-person time with forestry specialists, all course materials, a thumb drive of all publications, a tree measuring stick and snacks. Guest registration (in addition to initial registration) is $30 and includes all learning sessions and handouts at the sessions.
