ForestConnect is an education and applied research program of Cornell University and Cornell Cooperative Extension.  The goal of ForestConnect is to support the sustainable production of private woodlands in New York (and beyond) through the provision of educational assistance.  ForestConnect is a broad and deep program with numerous colleagues, cooperators, and partners.  For more information about ForestConnect, visit the main webpage.

 

Example of the venues used to disseminate information, knowledge, and educational programs include the following:

 

This NING site is intended to provide an opportunity for those who are interested in private woodlands to learn about woodlot management, share what they know, and connect with others who support the sustainability of private working woodlands.  This is not a commercial site and will not support sales of products (though product marketing discussions are fine) or solicitation of clients.  All reasonable protocols for civil discourse are expected, including the ability to document or verify any technical content or assertions.

 

Our key partners include:

 

Peter Smallidge, the NYS Extension Forester, is the primary manager of the site.  Please contact him if you have any questions.
