Forest Management Webinar Series

May 6 @ 12:00 pm - July 3 @ 1:00 pm


As we welcome in the spring tree planting season, we are also unfortunately faced with limitations on our ability to get out and plant because of coronavirus-related restrictions. While we may be stuck inside for the time being, this provides a great opportunity to brush up on our knowledge and skills on urban and community forestry management and arboriculture. To this end, the Penn State Extension Urban and Community Forestry team is pleased to offer a free weekly webinar series starting Wednesday, April 1, 2020. This webinar series will cover a range of topics including tree planting, site analysis, species selection, nursery stock considerations, and dealing with tricky planting sites in built environments. Other topics will address management of the urban forest, including inventories, ordinances, and planning. Join us each Wednesday at noon for these webinars. If you miss one, recordings will be available on the Penn State Extension website.
