Forest Regeneration Strategies at the Arnot

Posted on January 16, 2018 at 6:40pm 44 Comments

Many of you have visited Cornell's Arnot Teaching and Research Forest over the past year and noticed some big changes, namely several large regeneration harvests aimed at replacing aging stands with new ones that are as good or better as the old ones in terms of future quality and value.  For those of you who won't make it back there anytime soon but are interested in following the progress, I'll provide periodic updates here.

Hi Brett:

Maybe I'm missing something.  See the picture added by Carl DuPoldt and if you can let me  know its connection to working private woodlands....all I can get is chuckle.

Thanks Brett, I am but in a different way open pasture in Wayne County New York and mono crop Corn and soybean. But I just purchased 121 acres of forest in West Monroe New York and i will like to change the way i raise cattle and instead of clear cut the forest for hay field i will forest farm. So this is new to me but i think is the right think to do and preserve the forest. I will like to learn more about Forest Farming and Silvopasture and share it with the people i know in South America and maybe help to preserve the rain forest by sharing with them what i will learn at the West Monroe land.

Thank you
