Penn State Extension Sustainable Timber Harvesting Online Program April 28

Penn State Extension will host an online Sustainable Timber Harvesting Program April 28 from 8:00 a.m. to 12:15 p.m.

This program is designed to strengthen participants' understanding of sustainable forest management. It will provide attendees with the necessary knowledge and tools to assess whether a proposed timber harvest will sustain desired forest conditions for future generations.

Forests cover nearly 60 percent of Pennsylvania, almost 17 million acres. Sustaining forests for continued future benefits is dependent upon whether they receive proper management. 

Sustainable forestry describes practices that allow us to meet the needs of the present while preserving options for future generations. It is our responsibility to provide healthy sustainable forests for the future. 

Sustainable forestry allows us to use forest resources today while making sure the same resources are available in the future. 

This training is intended to give participants the knowledge and tools they need to assess, or work with a natural resource professional to assess, whether a proposed timber harvest meets sustainability guidelines. 

This is an opportunity to have your questions answered by forestry professionals who have experience managing forest resources.
