Woodland Storm Damage Workshop for Landowners to be offered in Athens on August 21st

Posted on August 1, 2012


Storms are one way in which Mother Nature practices forestry. However, it is difficult for many of us to view the recent storm of June 29, 2012 in this light. As our lives are returning  to order in the home, it is time to assess the damage inflicted on our woodlands.

A free, informative workshop “After the Storm: Forests, Wind Damage, and You” is being held at the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) Division of Forestry office, 360 East State Street in Athens on August 21 from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.   Woodland owners are invited to learn from ODNR Division of Forestry and OSU Extension foresters about safety in the woods, damage assessment, tree salvage options, and ways you can be prepared for future weather events.

A map and brochure describing the workshop can be found by visiting the Ohio Woodland Stewards at http://woodlandstewards.osu.edu, calling 614-688-3421, or emailing ohiowoods@osu.edu.  For more information contact: Dave Apsley at OSU Extension: 740-710-3009 or apsley.1@osu.edu.
