Pizza Seminars

Burlington

 

Our “pizza seminars” are a chance to enjoy some pizza while listening to an educational presentation.

Remaining seminars for Fall 2016:

  1. Forest Owner Legal Issues – 10/12
  2. Forest Safety and Security – 10/19

 

Your Trees in a Changing Climate

What does climate change mean for your trees? Are the past three years of record heat and drought a trend or an aberration? How do you manage for climate resilience in your forest? Should you be planting different species like redwood or sequoia? What is the actual evidence regarding climate change, how do you separate this from hype? Award-winning USFS scientist, IPCC member, and Skagit County small woodland owner Dave Peterson will explore these questions and explore how forest owners can manage for healthy, resilient forests whatever the future may hold.

Forest Owner Legal Issues

Forest owners face unique legal issues, especially when it comes to protection from liability. What if someone gets hurt on your property? Does it make a difference if they are an invited guest vs. trespasser? What if one of your trees falls across the property line and causes injury or damage to a neighbor? What sort of liability insurance should a landowner carry? What if there’s a hazard tree on your neighbor’s property that threatens your house—what can you do? Other issues include property boundaries and how they need to be marked to be able to prosecute for trespassing, how to handle disputes, adverse possession, easements and right-of-ways, getting access to your property if you are landlocked, etc. Spend an evening with land use/real estate/environmental law attorney Leslie Clark from Philips Burgess Law exploring these issues and getting your questions answered.

Forest Safety and Security

Maintaining the safety and security of your forest property is important for protecting and enjoying it. Trespassing, dumping, vandalism, timber theft, off-road vehicles, drugs, etc. can cause huge headaches and expenses, as well as threaten the safety of you and your family. Spend the evening with USFS Law Enforcement Officer Colin Mahoney and his K-9 partner for a discussion of strategies to make it more difficult for the bad guys to cause problems on your land.
