About the Event


This three-hour virtual workshop is designed to make practical plans and establish a community of practice around pitch pine barren management in light of southern pine beetle (SPB). Participants will use resources for developing management plans for at-risk pitch pine stands across the northeastern U.S. and share information about applications of thinning and prescribed fire.

A follow-up workshop on May 12 will enable participants to “woodshed” their individual management plans.
