Challenges to the Catskill Forests
Understanding Issues, Moving Towards Solutions
Friday, November 13
9:30 A.M. - 3:30 P.M.
Windham Mountain Resort, Windham, NY
Our regional trees and forests are being impacted by invasive insect pests, overwhelmed by competing ground vegetation, and eaten by deer!
Why should we care? Trees and forests clean our water and air, sequester carbon, support wildlife, provide local energy and valuable wood resources, plus provide places to recreate and relax. Come hear about these topics, have discussions on how we can find solutions and learn about valuable resources to help deal with these issues.
This program is for anyone who cares about trees and forests including municipal officials, forest landowners, resource managers, foresters, loggers, and agency and organizations working on these topics. Credits will be available for planning board members, SAF foresters and TLC loggers.
Meet Cornell‘s Natural Resource professionals who will provide insight into these issues:
