Valuing Standing Timber Course

Date/Time:

8:00 am to 3:45 pm on Thursday, April 9, 2020

Description:

Before timber is sold, a complete inventory is recommended to assess species, size and volume. Foresters have the primary responsibility for assessing timber value. They utilize an assessment called a timber “cruise.” To complete a cruise, foresters must be familiar with different measuring tools and the units of measure involved. Timber owners generally do not know how to measure and evaluate the trees they own and often take the word of the first potential buyer as to its worth. The Valuing Standing Timber Course will give participants the information they need to make it easier for them to “talk the language” and be confident they are getting a fair market price when it comes to estimating timber value.

Non-timber forest products in the United States: access, production, markets, and market values

Date/Time:

1:00 pm to 2:00 pm on Tuesday, April 14, 2020

Description:

Non-timber forest products (NTFPs) are derived from natural populations of plants or fungi, or farmed in forests. Although numerous and varied users harvest, trade, and consume NTFPs, relatively little is known about the organization of the markets for these products and the market value or contribution to local and regional economies. We will explore past research and gaps in current understanding related to the access, production, markets, and market values of NTFPs in the United States, including the continuum of production from wild-harvesting to forest farming of NTFPs.

Riparian Stewards Training

Date/Time:

9:00 am to 3:00 pm on Tuesday, April 21, 2020

Description:

The James River Association’s Riparian Stewards are volunteers that work with our staff to nurture and monitor select riparian forest buffers installed through the James River Buffer Program.

The first 3 years after a forest buffer is planted are critical to ensure their health and survival, which is why we offer assistance during that time to landowners who install buffers through the James River Buffer Program.

No prior knowledge is necessary and JRA will provide any tools and training needed. Training location details and directions will be sent to registered participants. Stewards must be able to provide their own transportation to the site and cover travel costs, and must be able to walk on uneven ground, work in varying weather conditions, and be okay with getting dirty!
