Webinar: Where’s that water going? Erosion control and harvest planning

April 9th, 2024 from 9-10am
Evidence of erosion on a forest road.


There are two factors which lead to erosion: the volume of water flowing down a surface, and the velocity that the water is moving. If you can't control both simultaneously, reducing one will still have a favorable impact on your ability to control erosion! There are multiple different approaches to dealing with erosion on forest roads, which can have negative impacts downhill with the flow of sediment. This interactive webinar features both Charlie Blinn teeing up the discussion with some foundational principles of harvest road planning and David Wilson presenting what's actually going on around the state from a Forest Management Guideline (FMG) perspective. 

Each webinar is rated for one CAT1 credit; participants, keep an eye on the chat for the link to the webinar CE request form towards the end of the hour. We will record each webinar and post it on the SFEC YouTube Channel. Recordings are typically available within one week of the live broadcast.
