The Uneven-Aged Management Outreach Project is pleased to announce that we have scheduled five workshops/field trips throughout Nova Scotia in May and June. Designed for owners of small private woodlots in Nova Scotia and forestry contractors who work on these woodlots, the workshops will provide information on uneven-aged management and the Category 7 Quality Improvement Silviculture Program.
Uneven-aged management permits woodlot owners to grow high-value trees while managing their woodlands for multiple species, ages, values and benefits. In Nova Scotia, financial assistance may be available to small private woodland owners through the Association for Sustainable Forestrys Category 7 Program.
In order to provide small private woodlot owners and contractors with information about uneven-aged management and the Category 7 program, the Association for Sustainable Forestrys Uneven-Aged Management Outreach Project is offering free workshops and field days throughout the province. The schedule of these day-long events is as follows:
May 3: Digby County, Richfield area
May 10: Colchester County, Earltown area
May 24: Queens County, North Brookfield area
June 7: Victoria County, Middle River area
June 14: Antigonish County, St. Joseph area
Space for these free programs is limited, and reservations are required. Nova Scotia woodlot owners and contractors are encouraged to register by calling the Outreach Project telephone number (902-673-2278) or emailing the project at outreach at asforestry.com.
The Uneven-Aged Management Outreach Project is funded by the Nova Scotia Department of Natural Resources. Information about the Category 7 Quality Improvement Silviculture Program is available at http://www.asforestry.com/Category7program.htm or from the Uneven-Aged Management Outreach Project at 902-673-2278 or outreach at asforestry.com
