Web Seminar - Timber Sales and Marketing

The PA Forests Web Seminar Center (http://rnrext.cas.psu.edu/PAForestWeb/) is pleased to announce the February on-line program. Dave Jackson, Forestry Extension Educator, will be presenting, “Timber Sales and Marketing Forest Products” on Tuesday, February 10th at noon and again at 7 p.m. Each seminar lasts approximately one hour.

Timber harvesting is an important management tool for private forest landowners. With planning, it allows owners to meet many of their objectives. This seminar will cover the recommended steps owners should take in order to have a successful timber harvest. This seminar also counts towards 1.0 credit of Category 2 SAF CFE credits.

Live seminars are scheduled for the second Tuesday of every month at noon and 7 p.m., skipping July and August. Each session is recorded and loaded onto the Web Seminar Center along with a copy of the presentation and any handout materials. So, if you are unable to participate in the "live" session, a recording of it will be available for you to view at your convenience. Of course, none of the interactive elements will be available when watching the recording.

To participate in the live seminars you must register and have a "Friend of Penn State" user ID. The "Register Now" page on the website will walk you through this process. If you are a member of the Penn State community, you already have your User ID, but we would ask you to register on the website so that you can receive reminders of upcoming programs.

Participation in the web seminar does not require any special software. To view live and previously recorded seminars all you need is a high-speed Internet connection and sound.
