Bottomland Hardwood forests are critically important to conserving ecosystem biodiversity in the Southeast. They provide nature-based solutions for maintaining water quality as well as buffering us from natural disasters that increasingly threaten local communities with inland flooding. Can we successfully consider active habitat restoration and conservation while balancing the economic equation that family forest owners, consulting foresters, and small timber markets require?

This workshop brings a unique set of partners together to explore forest management options from a 5-year science-based case study in North Carolina’s coastal plain. We will suggest guidelines for accomplishing desired future ecological conditions in bottomland hardwood forests to help you develop goals to address what happens next in your forest.

This workshop will benefit landowners interested in learning more about active management approaches to enhance forest health and function, resiliency, wildlife habitat and timber income objectives in bottomland hardwood forests.  It will also be of benefit to foresters and natural resource professionals who consult with and advise private forest landowners.
