I thought this might be of interest to you or some tree farmers in your area.
Below you will find an announcement for a series of workshops on Longleaf Pine management sponsored jointly by the Georgia Forestry Commission and The Longleaf Alliance. I’m confident that a number of GFA members will find this opportunity of interest. Please distribute the meetings schedule to your friends and clients.
The Longleaf Alliance, in conjunction with the Georgia Forestry Commission, is conducting 6 technical workshops for landowners , agency personnel , and private natural resource professionals such as consultants, industry employees, TIMO’s, REITS and NGO’s throughout Georgia. Whether you are considering longleaf restoration on your land, consult with those that do, or just want to learn more about this interesting part of our cultural and natural heritage, these workshops are for you!
