"Well begun is half done - proper site preparation and early vegetation control" Webinar

Washington State University Extension Forestry is offering Forest Stewardship Webinars.  They offer periodic live webinars on various forest stewardship topics. The webinars are free, but pre-registration is required. Each webinar is offered twice: one from 12:05-12:55 pm, and again from 7:05-7:55 pm.

Due to increased security, you must have your own Zoom account to participate. You can easily create a free Zoom account if you do not already have one. Important: you must have your Zoom account set up and be registered for the webinar at least two hours before the webinar start time.

If you are interested in a webinar but will be unable to attend, please register anyway so that you can receive a link to the recording.


Well begun is half done – proper site preparation and early vegetation control

Are you thinking about planting trees? Or did you already plant trees but worry they are going to be outcompeted by other vegetation? Excessive brush or undesirable plant pressure and reduce tree survival rates – wasting time and money. Come learn about vegetation management, why it’s important, and techniques for completing the job!
Instructor: Matt Provencher, Western Washington Landowner Assistance Forester, Washington Department of Natural Resources (DNR).

This webinar is approved for one teacher clock hour.  If you are a K-12 educator who would like clock hours, please contact Brendan Whyte, at brendan.whyte@wsu.edu, during or after the webinar. You must attend the webinar live to receive clock hour credits.
