Managing Forest Fragments

Date: November 13, 2019
Location: Morris Arboretum, Philadelphia, PA, UNITED STATES
Organizer: Robert Wells
Description: Ken LeRoy
Arborist, John B. Ward & Co Tree Experts

Fragmentation of natural areas due to urbanization results in isolated forest segments. Cut off by highways, rail lines, roads, and commercial and residential developments, these patches of green open space surrounded by the built environment are often neglected. These landscapes can be managed to develop a healthier, safer, functioning forest. The potential for the earth to support optimum tree growth and carbon sequestration can be realized by following basic forest management practices including vine control, preferred species selection, thinning for fewer more efficient trees, considering soil health, creating improved conditions for wildlife, and carving out access for people. Come and learn how to improve the health of our community forests. This course carries 6.5 CEUs for ISA certified arborists (S=2, P=2, M=2.5).
