Seth Zuckerman on Forest Nation

October 16 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Living in the Forest Nation at a Time of Climate Change 

 

The fate of forests and the fate of our climate are inextricably bound up together. Climate change makes our island’s forests more vulnerable … and at the same time, better forest management can help weaken the forces that are changing our climate. Come to this talk and see why one of the most important tools for climate-friendly forestry is a chainsaw, even more than a planting shovel.

“A Forest of Your Own: The Pacific Northwest Handbook of Ecological Forestry”
Seth Zuckerman will speak and answer questions about newly published book “A Forest of Your Own” written by Seth Zuckerman and Kirk Hanson.

ABOUT THE BOOK: Throughout Oregon and Washington there are several hundred thousand family forest owners, in addition to millions of forest acres under the care of community forests, municipalities, and Indigenous tribes, all of whom manage trees for sustainable wood harvest as well as recreation, inspiration, and a range of cultural connections. Yet there hasn’t been a complete resource for Pacific Northwest forest stewards until now.

In this comprehensive how-to, authors Kirk Hanson and Seth Zuckerman explore all aspects of forest management—everything from how to evaluate a piece of land before you buy it through implementing long-term plans that may include establishing new stands of trees, harvesting mushrooms as well as wood, and protecting your forests far into the future through wildfire risk reduction, climate change adaptation, and conservation easements. Loaded with helpful tables and illustrations that address the pros and cons of various species and how to best care for wildlife and the land, A Forest of Your Own is a clear guide to the many rewards of ecological forestry.
