The March 20, 2013 webinar was on the opportunity for forest owners and foresters and loggers to thin woodlots to improve tree growth, vigor, and health. The outline of the webinar included: the context for thinning, what to expect from thinning, forest development and clues for thinning, selecting the correct trees, strategies for thinning, and cautions plus concerns.
Thinning provides an effective strategy for woodland owners to improve the growth of their trees. If the woodlot is semi-mature, the thinning may be at zero cost or slightly revenue positive. It is important to select a forester carefully and proceed under the objectives of your management plan.
