Northern White-Cedar Workshop - Danforth


Tuesday, October 24, 2023


8:30 AM – 4 PM


Danforth Community Center


Researchers from the Cedar Club will be presenting a one-day workshop on October 24, from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. beginning at the Danforth Community Center (68 Springfield Road, Danforth, Maine - parking will be located around the corner with a short walk to the center). 

Morning presentations include the latest on cedar ecology and management including managing cedar in high deer browsing scenarios, with a focus on material in the soon-to-be-published second edition of the cedar silviculture guide.  An afternoon field tour hosted by Baskahegan will include operational implementation of irregular shelterwood in lowland cedar stands and cedar silviculture in mixed and cedar-dominated stands.

Speakers include Laura Kenefic (USFS), Robin Clark (Michigan Tech), Jean-Claude Ruel, Olivier Villemaire-Cote, and Jean-Pierre Tremblay (Laval University), and Charles Tardif (Maibec).

The Cooperative Forestry Research Unit (CFRU) has provided research funding for The Cedar Club in the past and we hope our members, as well as non-members, will take advantage of this tech transfer opportunity!


CFEs will be available for attending.
