Upcoming Events

Cornell Small Farms Program: BF 150: Farm Woodlot Management

September 27 - November 1, 2016
6:00 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.

Woodlots are a common feature of most farms in the eastern US, and are often overlooked for the value they might bring to the landowner and to farm enterprises. Farmers and woodland owners need to recognize the potential values of their woodland resource, be familiar with common ways a woodland can add value, and identify how the woodland will support the interests of the owner.
