Have you wondering how to improve your woodlot for wildlife, increase the growth and value of your timber, or just want healthy, vigorous trees growing in your forest? Do you have apple trees growing in your woods or a crowded stand of trees? Our workshop will introduce the concepts of caring for wild apple trees to benefit wildlife, as well as the concepts of crop tree management for a variety of benefits including, wildlife, timber, and other forest stewardship goals. This workshop is geared toward landowners who want to learn more about managing wild apple trees, identifying and managing crop trees, and how to help them grow better for wildlife, timber production, and other purposes. 

Join Tom Ebert, Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) District Conservationist, and Jim Frohn, Grafton County Forester with UNH Cooperative Extension and learn about forest practices that benefit your trees.  

Landowners are often encouraged to contact NRCS or UNH Cooperative Extension for a woodlot visit to learn about conservation practices that can enhance wildlife habitat, forest vigor, quality, and value.  NRCS offers technical and cost-share assistance to eligible landowners for several conservation practices that improve forest and wildlife habitat.
