Coached Planning – Monday Evenings, Starting September 17th

Forest Stewardship Coached Planning is the flagship course for small landowners and is put on in partnership by WSU Forestry Extension and the WDNR.  Topics covered include silviculture, ecology, harvesting, thinning, wildilfe, special forest products mapping, soils, and much more.  Through this series of classes, landowners are “coached” through the process of writing a forest management plan for their property based on their own management objectives.  Your management plan is a key to accessing resources for small forest landowners in this area, such as reduced property taxes, cost-share assistance programs, and becoming a certified stewardship forest.

Upcoming Sessions

Alder Management Workshop – October 13th, 2018 (Raymond, WA)

No longer considered a “weed-tree”, red alder is now very marketable wood and log prices are competing even with Douglas fir.  However, red alder management can be tricky and comes with equal parts challenge and opportunity.  With that in mind, this workshop will cover all things alder as they relate to small forest owners.  Forestry experts will help equip you with the knowledge and resources to grow alder with research-backed management practices.
