In These Woods Letter Series

“In These Woods” is a monthly letter series for all those who interact with the woods. Whether you manage forests or appreciate from a distance, you can learn all about agroforestry, forest ecology, wildlife, recreation, timber management, and more. Sign up to enjoy, study and sustainably manage the woods around you. 

In These Woods Woodland Stewardship Series is a collaboration among Cornell Cooperative Extension of Columbia & Greene Counties, New York City DEP, USDA Forest Service, and the Watershed Agricultural Council’s Forestry Program
