Forestry course offered in county

Print Article

Many Idaho forest landowners want a better understanding of how forests grow and how they can better manage their forest property to meet their goals. In fact, they’re often required to demonstrate planned, active forest management to qualify for lower forestry property tax rates and cost-share assistance for management activities such as thinning.

This summer, a six-session program, titled the Forestry Shortcourse, will help enrich forest landowners’ understanding of forest ecology, silviculture, forest health, wildlife habitat, and other forestry topics. In the process, participants are coached by natural resource professionals on how to develop a management plan for their forest.

The Forestry Shortcourse will be held Wednesdays, 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., June 13, 20, 27 and July 11, 18, 25, at the Sandpoint Orchard,10881 N. Boyer Road. The program can accommodate up to 25 people. A $38 registration fee includes a large binder of forest stewardship resource materials, including a wooden USB flash drive with over 120 extension publications.
