Do you want to learn new things about enjoying and caring for your property? Do you want to learn things like why so many trees are dying and what to do; how to protect your property from wildfire; agroforestry and nontimber product opportunities; how to improve wildlife habitat; how to successfully plant and care for young trees; and much more? Do you want to participate in roundtables and discussion panels to get stories and tips from your fellow landowners? If so, this Winter School is for you!

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.
- Sold Out. The course will be held 6:00-9:00 PM Tuesday Wednesday, January 27th – March 17th, 2020, except for the first night, when the class will end at 9:30 PM.
This course is for northwest Washington (Clallam, Island, Jefferson, King, San Juan, Skagit, Snohomish, and Whatcom Counties). There will be additional northwest WA courses later in 2021. For southwest Washington (property in Pierce County southward) courses, contact Patrick Shults. For eastern Washington courses, contact Sean Alexander.
