Northern Hardwood Conference 2021 Special

Forest practitioners and researchers recently "gathered" virtually for the Northern Hardwood Conference 2021 (NHC 2021), the first range-wide conference dedicated to northern hardwood forests in over 30 years.  In this special episode of SilviCast we hear from conference attendees themselves in a conference roundtable as they discuss challenges facing the sustainable management of northern hardwood forests.  The challenges and potential solutions they offer have a lot to say about silviculture in every forest type!  

Co-host: Christel Kern, Ph.D.
