This course provides a framework for managing small and medium scale woodlands to maximum ecological health and return on value. Over a day, we move from high-level value analysis down to extremely practical tree selection and processing. The morning will be classroom teaching and discussion and the second half of the day will be in the woods, demonstrating and practicing skills and knowledge. Disclaimer: This course does not teach chainsaw safety or tree felling practices, both of which are very dangerous activities that carry a high risk of injury and death. Please get the level of training and instruction you need to keep from doing something terrible to yourself and others.
Expected Course Outline:
- Land use
- Management Methods
- Value from Woodlands
- Tree Uses
- Tree Selection Process
- Tree Processing
- Biochar and Mushroom Inoculation Demos
