Introduction to Forest Management
with Joseph Rossetti
Students will be exposed to basic concepts of forestry such as tree identification, forest ecology and succession, forest and wildlife management, timber harvesting, and common forest needs. A combination of classroom and field work will be included.
Note: Participants will need two books which they may purchase at the first class for $5.00. The books are Common Native Trees of Virginia and Common Native Shrubs and Woody Vines of Virginia. Alternatively, they can download the books and print them at home from http://dof.virginia.gov/shop/index-books.htm.
