Event Description: 

The Goodwin Conservation Center will host the fourth program of the Forestry for Landowners Discovery Series. This is the final of four sessions discussing basic forestry concepts and skills used in Connecticut.  How can you determine how tall a tree is before you cut it down? How can you tell how much usable wood is in a tree? How can you determine how much a tree is worth?  Forester Jim Parda will show us how these measurements are taken and students will have a chance to practice using forestry instruments in the field.   Not just for landowners!  All are welcome to this program. Both indoor and outdoor components.
