REPUBLIC, Wash. – Is your forest healthy? Washington State University Extension will teach landowners how to answer this question at a day-long workshop offered at two locations in Eastern Washington this fall.
The hands-on workshops are designed to give landowners experience identifying and measuring factors that affect a forest’s health. Workshop participants will learn how to recognize forest problems and how to manage their own forest to be resistant to insects and diseases. Landowners will learn how to measure forest health indicators and assess risk. Afternoon field sessions will include hands-on measurement of forest timber stands.
Extension educators from WSU and forestry experts from the region will lead sessions.
Dates and locations include:
- Sept. 28 – Republic Fairgrounds, Republic, Wash., 9:00 a.m.-3:30 p.m.
- Nov. 2 – Chelan County Fire District 3, Leavenworth, Wash., 9 a.m.-3:30 p.m.
To register for the workshop, contact WSU Extension Forester Andy Perleberg at 509-667-6540 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
