Hardwood Marking for Landowners

September 26 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm


This hands-on, outdoor workshop is designed for landowners of small woodlots of northern hardwoods It will instruct how to selectively mark their own hardwoods for a harvest. The goal is to teach how to select trees to remove with an emphasis to improve the quality of the remaining stand; to thin the stand to improve growth and still maintain diversity and good minimum density. Other topics will include how to retain and manage important wildlife habitat components such as rare and sensitive habitats and species, mast trees, cavity trees, and coarse woody debris. Density measuring devices will be given to workshop registrants. This workshop will only teach tree selection and will not teach volume estimation and appraisal. Preregistration is required. Snacks and lunch will be provided according to COVID precautions. Bringing a clipboard is recommended. Please pre-register by September 16. Cost is $30 per person. Contact Forester Larry Czelusta at larry.czelusta@macd.org or 231-775-7681 ext 3. PLEASE REMEMBER THAT SPACE IS LIMITED!
