Forestry: Conservation Planning Resource Assessment - Amherst Junction, Wisconsin, 8/25/11
This intermediate-level course will be divided into an online portion and a classroom/field training section as participants use NRCS’s Nine Step Conservation Planning process, learning simple tools for integrating forestry planning and developing knowledge of basic forestry in order to assist farmers in their planning process.
The online course introduces participants to basic forest ecology, management principles and sampling techniques. Forest eco-regions and habitats will be shared and the elements needed for a successful forestry plan will be highlighted.
During the classroom portion there will be a brief synopsis of state and federal programs available for woodlot management and a presentation of different assessment tools and techniques. The course will also touch on alternative management strategies and the risks to successful tree establishment.
The Field training day located in Central Wisconsin will focus on identifying common trees and plants of both a northern pine forest and southern hardwood forest.
A walk-over of a local wooded area will be the setting to discuss site-specific issues and develop practical experience of the tools and assessment techniques presented during the online portion of the course.
Participants will complete a site inspection and assess the woodlot using techniques demonstrated. To complete the course, teams work to write up and share recommendations based on the farmer's objectives for the woodlot.
This is an introductory forestry overview. Participants will not be trained foresters nor certified in DNR Managed Forest Program upon completion.
