Best Practices on Small Wooded Acreage.

Peter Smallidge, Cornell University

Wednesday March 18, 2020

Presentations at 12:00 to 1:00 PM and again at 7:00 to 8:00 PM (webinars may run long with questions)

Many woodland owners have parcels that are “small” compared to other owners. These parcels are endearing to the owners, and provide many opportunities for activities to ensure they remain healthy and support the owner’s interests. The activities and management needs of these owners are often distinct from those of larger-sized parcels. Owners and managers of smaller parcels can use a variety of strategies to accomplish their goals. This presentation will cover several simple and basic actions that owners can take to be active in the woods and enjoy the land to its fullest extent.
