2015 Forestry Class Presented by the ODNR Division of Forestry, Service Forestry Program
ODNR Service Foresters John Kehn and Aaron Kash, covering Ashtabula, Cuyahoga, Geauga, Lake, Portage, Summit, and Trumbull Counties will be conducting an “Introduction to Forestry” class on April 18th, 2015 at Punderson State Park Chalet. Space is limited to the first 60 participants who register.
Service Foresters work with private landowners on all aspects of forest management from tree planting through harvesting. This class does count for Ohio Forest Tax Law credit but does NOT cover the required “Core” class, which will be held in early summer. The two classes will not cover the same material.
Major topics covered in this class include how trees grow, property tax reduction programs, the economics of forestry, timber stand improvement, and most importantly, the if, why, when, and how to sell timber.
The class will commence at the Chalet at Punderson State park at 9:00 AM and conclude at 3:00 PM on Saturday April 18th, 2015. Dress for the weather as we will be going outside rain or shine. Coffee will be provided. Please bring a sack lunch. There is no cost to participate.
To register for the class call 440-564-5883 from 8 to 4:30 Monday through Friday. Depending on participation levels, in addition to the “Introduction to Forestry” class, subsequent classes covering specific topics such as “Timber Stand Improvement”, and “Timber Marketing” in more detail will be offered throughout the year in various locations in the northeast counties. Watch for further announcements.
