July Fireside Chat: Practical Forest Restoration for Small Woodland Owners

JULY FIRESIDE CHAT | JULY 19, 2023| 7:30-8:30PM | ON ZOOM

Many forests in our region need active stewardship to achieve their ecological and economic potential. Years of single-species management, overstocked stands, invasive species, and neglect can make forests susceptible to a slow decline in ecosystem services.

This month’s fireside chat will focus on forest restoration practices for small woodlands. NNRG’s Director of Forestry Kirk Hanson will discuss how to evaluate whether or not your forest is fully functioning from an ecosystem services standpoint, and if not, how to begin planning to improve any deficient ecosystem services. He’ll cover some examples of forest restoration projects he’s worked on in Hanson Family Forest that illustrate how one can correct for deficiencies, and the economics of some of those projects. 
The July Fireside Chat will take place on Zoom on Wednesday, July 19, 2023 from 7:30-8:30pm.

Fireside chats are monthly community events where forest owners can talk directly with NNRG staff and other forestry professionals, and connect with other forest owners in western Washington and Oregon.

On the third Wednesday of every month, we invite you to join NNRG Director of Forestry Kirk Hanson, others from NNRG’s forestry team, and fellow forest landowners and land stewards to discuss forest management topics, share information and resources relevant to those topics, and connect with others face some of the same challenges and opportunities as you in stewarding their lands.

Bring your summer drink of choice! Please turn on your Zoom cameras if you can!
