Wednesday, September 15, 2021. 1:00 PM. Webinar: Assessing Storm Damaged Pine Stands. David Dickens, University of Georgia. Sponsored by Southern Regional Extension Forestry. Register here.
Dr. David Dickens (UGA), will provide a general overview of storm damage assessment and potential management strategies for landowners.
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. This webinar will provide landowners with 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?
