Intensive Forest Management Workshop: A Demonstration and Discussion of Techniques Promoted by Irwin Post

The late Irwin Post

Please join us for an interactive workshop and brown bag lunch, exploring long-term Northern Woodlands magazine contributor Irwin Post’s practice of intensively managing young forest stands. Post described this approach in his final article for the magazine, Beyond Hunter-Gatherer Forestry.

This event is made possible through support from the Irwin Post Speakers’ Fund, reflecting his legacy of sharing knowledge with others, and his devotion to quality forest management. Pre-registration is required.

Co-hosted by Long View Forest Management and Northern Woodlands.

  • Forest development in Vermont – land use history, stand dynamics, changing markets, and missed opportunities
  • Beyond Hunter-Gatherer Forestry- The Irwin Approach
