  • Intensive Forest Management Workshop Registration

    A Demonstration and Discussion of Techniques Promoted by Irwin Post

    The Post Family Wood Lot, Chester, Vermont

    Please join us for an interactive workshop and brown bag lunch, exploring long-term Northern Woodlands' contributor Irwin Post's practice of intensively managing young forest stands. Irwin described this approach in his final article for the magazine, "Beyond Hunter-Gatherer Forestry."

    This event is made possible through support from the Irwin Post Speakers' Fund, reflecting his legacy of sharing knowledge with others, and his devotion to quality forest management.

    Co-hosted by Long View Forest Management and Northern Woodlands.
