Brochure with agenda and alternative sign-in sheet


The field of forestry is often described as a mix of science and art. Blending the needs of landowners, industry and society with the characteristics and potential of the land is a complex endeavor. The history of forestry in the Southeastern United States is rich and exciting, and has led to one of the most ecologically diverse and economically important regions in the country. The course will provide an introduction to forest management concepts, practices and relevant issues.
Please note: This course has been shortened from three days to two.
Who Will Benefit?
Anyone with an interest in forestry and forest management is invited to participate. The course will be especially useful for landowners and those who work with foresters and the forest industry such as forestry agencies, associations, forestry investment firms, real estate investment trusts and banking institutions with forest investments.
