Woodlot Management Tour: Decisions and Actions (1.5 hr)

Woodlot management takes time, commitment, and planning. It seems that every decision and activity raises new challenges and sometimes, opportunities.

Come explore the woodlot and gain valuable insights into how management decisions and actions affect future values. The Penn State Demonstration Woodlot is approximately 150 acres in size. It is managed for multiple objectives including; timber production, wildlife habitat, water quality, recreational activities, and of course, research and demonstration for education. Forestry and Wildlife professions from Penn State Extension, DCNR Bureau of Forestry and the Pennsylvania Game Commission lead the tours and will be on hand to answer your questions and help you find resources to effectively steward Pennsylvania's woodlands. With proper stewardship, woodlands can provide the kinds of things you own your land for including more wildlife viewing and hunting opportunities, increased timber income, and additional recreational opportunities.
