Workshops to focus on free online forestry planning tool
Ecotrust, the Oregon State University Extension Service and Wallowa Resources are partnering to offer two-hour hands-on workshops for landowners and foresters in Enterprise, Baker City and La Grande.
The forest planner, a free online forestry scenario planning tool developed by Ecotrust, enables the user to quickly and easily map property and divide it into management units, or map out forest types and then create and compare customized management scenarios.
Users can choose from a spectrum of harvest practices to apply to different parts of the property and then see what the outcomes would look like in terms of standing timber volume, harvest yields, carbon storage, harvest and transport costs and gross timber revenue.
