I will be presenting an oak focused webinar next week (Jan 18-noon and 7 PM) via Cornell’s ForestConnect series. This webinar series is targeted at woodland owners and others interested in private forest lands management.
Although the official title is “Oak Regeneration” my working title is “The Future of Oak is in Our Hands”. See below for more detail on topics to be covered and information on how to connect.
Oak Forest Regeneration. Dave Apsley, Ohio State University
Wednesday January 18, 2017
Presentations at 12:00 to 1:00 PM and again at 7:00 to 8:00 PM (webinars may run long with questions)
Oaks are the dominate species in much of the central hardwood region of the eastern US. They are also important components of northern hardwood and Appalachian hardwood forests. Throughout the eastern US oaks are not only pivotal as a timber species and hard mast for wildlife, but they also provide important aesthetic attributes and most importantly stability to ecological communities. As with many hardwoods, oaks are experiencing regeneration complications and failures. This webinar will explore the ecological and economic importance of oak, establish the basis for the challenges of oak regeneration, factors that have contributed to regeneration decline, and steps that can be taken. Collaborative efforts to ensure the continued prominence of oak in Ohio will be discussed as a case study with opportunity in other locations. Presented by Dave Apsley, Natural Resources Specialist, The Ohio State University.
