Learn About Uneven-Aged Management & Have a Chance to Win a Prize
Uneven-aged management permits woodlot owners to grow high-value trees while managing their woodlands for multiple species, ages, values and benefits. Financial assistance may be available through the Association for Sustainable Forestry’s Category 7 Quality Improvement Silviculture Program.
In order to provide Nova Scotia woodlot owners and contractors with information about uneven-aged management and the Category 7 program, the Association for Sustainable Forestry is administering an outreach project that will distribute educational materials and offer workshops and field days throughout the province. Woodlot owners and contractors are encouraged to call the Outreach Project telephone number (902-673-2278) or email the project at outreach at asforestry.com in order to receive the information packet and hear about the programs as soon as they are scheduled.
The Uneven-Aged Management Outreach Project is also conducting a survey designed to collect information that will be used in writing a report for the Association on uneven-aged management and the Category 7 Quality Improvement Silviculture Program. Woodlot owners and contractors who take the survey will be entered in a prize draw to be held in September. To take the survey, call the Outreach Project at 902-673-2278 or look for the project’s booths at meetings this spring.
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
