Profile Information

How many acres of woodland do you own or annually manage?
45
Please describe, with two or three sentences, why you are interested in woodlot ecology and management. Your answer helps us ensure that only those people truly interested in woodlots are added as members.
I have a wooded land with some older growth, some pine plantations, and young growth. It has not been managed, and needs care. Emerald ash borer has killed a portion of the trees, what should be done now? Harvest, or let rot? How to thin the pine plantations?
