Please join us for the second CFRU webinar of 2019, which will cover the management of hardwood—softwood mixtures, known as mixedwoods, for both economic and ecological benefit.

The webinar will begin with a presentation by Dr. Laura Kenefic, who will review current and emerging concepts of mixedwood management in light of an uncertain future.

After this talk, Dr. Bethany Muñoz Delgado will discuss highlights from a 50-year-old study of mixedwood productivity following biomass harvesting and prescribed burning.  This is the longest study of its type in the world.

There will be time reserved for questions following their presentations.
