WSU Extension Offers Forest Health Workshops in Eastern Washington

Sep 19, 2011

Washington State University Extension and Washington Department of Natural Resources forestry experts are offering two forest health workshops. The first is Sept. 24 in Mazama, and the second is in Tonasket on Oct. 1. Both workshops run from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Loggers who attend one of the all-day workshops can earn five MLP credits.
In the workshops, attendees will learn what constitutes a healthy forest and what can be done to maintain health.
Attendees will also learn to recognize forest health problems. Identification of common forest insects and diseases will be covered and, at select field sites, attendees will learn how to manage stand density and measure forest health indicators.

The Sept. 24 workshop will be held at the Mazama Community Club, located at 512 Goat Creek Rd. in Mazama. The Oct. 1 workshop will be held at the Tonasket Community Cultural Center at 411 Western Ave., Tonasket.
