Woodland owners and silviculture contractors in Nova Scotia will soon have another chance to learn about uneven-aged management and growing high-value trees. The Uneven-Aged Management Project is designed to educate woodland owners and silviculture contractors interested in growing long-lived, shade-tolerant tree species and quality forest products.
Beginning in late April, 2010, the Outreach Project will offer more than a dozen free workshops throughout the province. Workshops will include a visit to a woodlot where quality-improvement silviculture treatments have been or could be conducted. They will emphasize ”how to’s” of uneven-aged management, with opportunities to learn through hands-on exercises conducted in the field. Registration for each workshop will be capped at 25 people, so pre-registration will be required.
This project is administered by the Association for Sustainable Forestry and is being funded by the Nova Scotia Department of Natural Resources (NSDNR) as part of program to increase the number of small, private woodlot owners who use uneven-aged forest management methods on appropriate sites.
Interested woodlot owners and contractors are encouraged to contact the Uneven-Aged Management Outreach Project at 902-673-2278 or outreach at asforestry.com.
