WSU North Puget Sound Extension Forestry Classes and Events
We have a variety of forestry education offerings throughout the year, including workshops, field tours, field days, and short courses.
Invasive Weed Control Expo
Sunday November 20, 2016 – Everett
Controlling invasive and noxious weeds is a challenging but essential task for landowners. At this expo, you will learn to identify and control some of the most common invasive weeds that plague forest landowners, including: holly, ivy, blackberries, knotweed, reed canary grass, Scotch broom, etc. See demos and do hands-on practicing of multiple control techniques, including hand-pulling, root digging, using a weed wrench, sheet mulching, foliar herbicides, cut stump treatments, and stem injection.
Forest Stewardship Coached Planning
A forestry class for landowners
Our flagship class will teach you how to assess your trees, avoid insect and disease problems, attract wildlife, and take practical steps to keep your forest on track to provide enjoyment and even income for years to come. In this class you will develop your own Forest Stewardship Plan, which brings state recognition as a Stewardship Forest and eligibility for cost-share assistance, and may also qualify you for significant property tax reductions.
