- 8/11/2020 (new date): The four horsemen of the root disease apocalypse
Forest Stewardship Coached Planning
A forestry course for landowners
Our flagship course 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 course 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.
- The TUESDAY course will be held 6:00-9:00 PM Tuesday evenings, September 8th – October 27th, 2020, except for the first night, September 8th, when the class will end at 9:30 PM.
- The THURSDAY course will be held 6:00-9:00 PM Thursday evenings, September 17th – November 5th, 2020, except for the first night, September 8th, when the class will end at 9:30 PM.
These two courses are for northwest Washington. A southwest Washington course will be offered in early 2021.
