Yates County Forestry Workshop: Ensuring Healthy Forest Regeneration

Penn Yan, NY - The Master Forest Owners and Cornell Cooperative Extension of Yates County will host their 3nd annual workshop titled "Yates County Forestry Workshop: Ensuring Healthy Forest Regeneration."
Recent studies by Cornell University and the Nature Conservancy concluded that up to 70% of New York forests are not successfully regenerating themselves.  This is a direct result of overbrowsing of tree seedlings by deer, interfering and invasive vegetation that prevents the germination of desirable species and in some cases a history of high grading harvest practices (take the best and leave the rest).  Without successful regeneration, the forest as we know it will not exist in the next century.
Participants will learn the solutions to our regeneration problem by understanding how to manage the deer population and interfering vegetation.  New York State Forest Owners Association member, Jerry Michael, will discuss the Cornell study in the context of our second growth forests during the 21th century.  NYS DEC Senior Wildlife Biologist, Art Kirsch, will address the impacts of deer browsing on forest regeneration, and Owner/President/Forester at Future Forest Consulting, Inc., Corey Figueiredo, will cover invasives and interfering plants plus silvicultural treatments necessary for successful forest regeneration.
This is a great opportunity to tap the local forestry knowledge and even schedule a time for a Master Forest Owner to come visit your woodlot.  This workshop is open to the public.  To be held on: Saturday, March 2, 2013, 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM, Yates County Auditorium, 417 Liberty Street, Penn Yan.
Fee is $10 per family, which includes one set of handouts and refreshments.
