Event Description

This field program will give landowners an opportunity to learn how they can get involved in two hands-on projects that will help them understand and improve the conditions in their woodlands. Peter Smallidge, Cornell University State Extension Forester, will lead the program which features both the AVID deer vegetation impact project and the Northeast Timber Growing Contest.

To help document deer damage to tree seedlings and understory plants like wildflowers and help guide deer management decisions, the Cornell University Department of Natural Resources developed the AVID method (Assessing Vegetation Impact from Deer). This citizen science project gives landowners and opportunity to measure and report the impact deer are having on tree seedlings and wildflowers in their woodlands. 

The Northeast Timber Growing Contest is designed the help landowners owners improve their woodlots while having fun at the same time. Participating in the contest will help answer questions like are my woods too thick or too thin?  How do I select cull and timber trees?  How fast are my trees growing?  We will learn about the various categories of the contest and will lay out a plot, identify, measure and tag trees. 

We’ll be serving burgers after the program so you don’t go home on an empty stomach.  There is no fee for this event, but please contact Kevin at kjm8@cornell.edu or (607) 584-5013 to register and for directions.
