Brochure with optional mail-in registration form



There are so many silvicultural treatments available today for foresters, managers, and landowners who want to practice intensive forest management that a recent Society of American Foresters meeting was entitled “Growing 12 tons/ac/yr”.  Of course that level of production comes at a price.  Budgets, markets, site quality and personal objectives are important determinants of the best mix of treatments for a particular property.  This course will evaluate the trade-offs between the costs, economic and otherwise, and the benefits for different mixes of silvicultural treatments with emphasis on quantifying the gains for objective decision making.

How One Will Benefit

Upon completion of this course, a forest landowner or land manager will be able to make effective silvicultural and economical  decisions for managing loblolly, longleaf, and slash stands.

Who Should Attend?

Foresters, land managers, forest landowners, and others interested in effectively managing their pine stands with an emphasis on growth, yields, and maximizing economic benefits.
