Assessing Storm Damaged Pine Stands
September 15, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
? Our Fall 2021 Webinar Series kicks off next week! ?
Tune in September 15th at 1pm EST!
The ongoing climate crisis has led to an increase in extreme weather events like hurricanes and tornadoes in the southeastern U.S. Hurricanes cause extensive damage to forest stands from high winds and floods resulting from the heavy rains that accompany them. Hurricanes and tornadoes stress, damage, or kill trees by uprooting, breaking, bending, leaning, wounding, and flooding stands.
Dr. David Dickens, University of Georgia Warnell School of Forestry and Natural Resources, will provide landowners with storm damage assessment tools, preventative action strategies and management plans to mitigate long-term consequences and facilitate recovery. This webinar will cover such questions as: What kind of storm damage do individual pines and pine stands sustain? What are the ecological impacts of this damage? What management strategies are available?
