This course provides an introduction to sustainable home-scale forest stewardship practices and philosophies. This mindful approach to small-scale forest management promotes a healthy environment abundant with resources for people and planet.

Topics include creating wildlife habitat, basic tree biology, tree thinning and pruning, planting/transplanting, and much more. We will also have the opportunity to go into the field to put practices into action and gain hands-on experience, giving participants a balance between the knowledge and application of forest stewardship.
