2020 Webinar: Site Matters! Quantifying Regeneration After Silvicultural Treatments in Black Ash Stands

ground layer vegetation in an ash-dominated wet forest

There has been some research in Minnesota on species that can potentially replace ash in a future with emerald ash borer. Little work has been done investigating if non-ash species can naturally regenerate following harvesting in black ash stands. Marcella Windmuller-Campione with the University of Minnesota-Department of Forest Resources will present the findings of a study examining regeneration following three silvicultural techniques (clearcut with reserves, diameter-limit harvests, and group selection) and the susceptibility of these forests to EAB in the future.

Date: Tuesday February 18, 2020 from noon-1pm central
Speaker: Marcella Windmuller-Campione, University of Minnesota Department of Forest Resources
Cost: $20 per webinar or $50 for the entire 2020 series
