Forest lands cover more than 210 million acres in the
southeastern United States, and there are more than 21 million acres of forest
in Alabama alone. More than 95 percent of Alabama’s forest lands are privately owned.
Landowners need quality land and wildlife resource training
opportunities so that they manage their properties effectively. Dr. Gary Lemme,
Alabama Extension director says Alabama landowners can learn more about a
variety of management techniques by attending a Regional Forestry Field Days.
“Participants will learn how to manage Alabama’s forests for
a variety of uses,” said Lemme. “These events will feature experts in forest
and wildlife management resources as well as a tour of a certified TREASURE
Forest or Tree Farm.”
Sponsored by the Alabama Natural Resources Council (ANRC)
and the Alabama State Tree Farm Committee, three regional Forestry Field Days will
be held in October. Registration for these free events begins at 8 a.m. and
lunch will be served. Call the appropriate regional field day contact to
confirm your spot and to get directions.
