Women and Our Woods: Tree ID and FIG Plot Workshop

Women and Our Woods Tree ID and FIG Plot Workshop

Saturday, March 7, 2015 – 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM

Lee Academy, Winn Rd, Lee

Have you ever wondered what kinds of trees are in your woodland and how they are measured? In this half-day workshop, we will learn how Forest Inventory Growth (FIG) plots are used to study the Maine woods. Outdoors, we’ll walk in the woods and learn how to identify trees in the winter. Our time indoors will include a discussion on your questions on forest management with fellow women woodland owners and women foresters.

Plan for the weather and very deep snow.

This workshop is offered free of charge. To find more information and to register, please contact Amanda Mahaffey at amanda@forestguild.org or (207)432-3701, or visit www.womenowningwoodlands.net.
