Description/Notes: 

The host landowner, Pat Keller, will lead this tour and will share some key strategies in controlling invasive plants such as tree-of-heaven, multiflora rose, etc., tree thinnings including crop tree release, wild grapevine control, planting oak, persimmons, and other tree species, planting various berry species, and streamside land protection along a certified trout stream. We will also visit wildlife food and habitat areas on the property.

This walking tour will cover generally flat ground with a few relatively steep sections, so sturdy walking shoes are recommended.  Following the walking tour, a lunch will be provided.

This “get together” is sponsored by the West Virginia Woodland Owners Association, WV Soil Conservation District & Trout Unlimited, WVU Appalachian Hardwood Center/ Extension Service, West Virginia Forestry Association, the WV Tree Farm, and the WV Stewardship Programs.
