LifeLong Learning Program-Village Forestry: The Ecology and Management of Community Trees
Trees and other plants provide important social and environmental benefits in the places where people live and work. The shade, habitat, food, and beauty produced by trees contribute to healthy and liveable communities. This class will consider the growing conditions and management practices necessary for sustaining a robust village forest. Come prepared for an hour in class followed by an hour+ walk outside.
Facilitator: Greg Owens is a senior forester with the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation, chair of the Village of Hamilton Tree Commission, and a board member of Southern Madison Heritage Trust.
