Purdue Department of Forestry and Natural Resources and Purdue Extension - Whitley County hosted woodland management webinars April 28 and May 12, 2020. Lenny Farlee, Purdue Extension forester, was the featured speaker each night.
On April 28, participants learned about an introduction to managing for a healthy forest, invasive species management, timber stand improvement (TSI) principles, and access to assistance.

Topics include why people sell timber, getting help from a professional forester, common concerns when selling timber, best management practices loggers use, types of tree sales, pros and cons of each, tax considerations, potential cost-sharing opportunities through USDA, and where to get additional information.
