Is my Forest Healthy?  How do I Know?

· Learn to identify and manage common conditions that make your trees weak and vulnerable to tree-killing bark beetles, root rots, defoliators, and other pests.

· Learn how to examine tree density in order to recognize if your forest is “overstocked” and how to thin and prune trees so they are healthy, productive, and safe. 

· Get ideas for improving and protecting wildlife habitat in your woods. 

· Get hands-on experience measuring trees.  Keep the instruments for monitoring growth and changes. 

· Learn about programs that will help you improve forest health, reduce wildfire risk, and save you time and money.  

· Meet foresters, contractors, family forest owners!
