Foresters often talk with landowners about the value of working with a professional in managing their land, but professionals frequently do not get candid feedback from their clients. What is the experience of taking care of a property and working with a forester, from the owner’s perspective?
Landowners Bet and Patrick Smith of rural northeastern Connecticut will share how they came to own and steward their woodland and will discuss their experiences and lessons learned from working with different private and public foresters. We will also be joined by Connecticut NRCS District Conservationist Bill Purcell, who has worked with the Smiths and many other landowners and is familiar with common issues that can arise.
This webinar presents an opportunity to hear from fellow landowners about ways to work effectively in partnership with foresters and allied professionals.
The event is part of a larger USDA Forest Service tri-state grant project focused on Increasing Resiliency in Southern New England Oak Forests.
