How do we promote multi-age forests after high severity wildfire?
Join us on a field tour visiting eight different wildfires (including re-burns) and post-fire responses across private industrial forests, public lands, and non-industrial private forests. We’ll explore the theory and practice of reforestation and plantation management in a century framed by drought and active fire. We hope to discuss the important components of reforestation including seed, stock, planting strategies, fuels and competing vegetation management, and professional capacity to respond to ever increasing reforestation need.
