Keeping Forests as Forests

Cornell and Penn State are cooperating to offer three workshops aimed at Keeping Forests as Forests by conveying skills and resources for peer volunteers, foresters, extension educators, and others to help forest landowners think about the future of the forest beyond their tenure.

Planning for the future of forestland beyond a landowner’s tenure is often one of the more difficult aspects of land ownership. Yet, the definition of good forest stewardship includes a concern for land sustainability into the future. Landowners, extension educators, and service foresters are invited to come learn more about the tools available for forestland succession planning, and how to reach out and encourage landowners to consider their land’s future.
