This webinar will cover common characteristics of forests that have been high-graded in the past and strategies to improve the quality of high-graded woodlots.

High-grading, a commonly used method to harvest timber on private forests in Pennsylvania, involves the removal of the most economically valuable trees. Caring for high-graded forests often presents landowners with unique challenges and considerations.  

Presented by: Alex Curtze, Master of Science student, Forest Resources, Penn State University and Laura Leites, Ph.D., Associate Research Professor, Penn State Department of Ecosystem Science and Management
