Woodland Stewards offers a variety of educational programs across the state for woodland owners and those interested in learning more about the forests of Ohio. Some classes are designed to help a woodland owner form a solid foundation for their future woodland education (Name That Tree) while others build on the basics to provide more in depth coverage of specific topics (Improving Your Forest) or deal with new and/or emerging topics such as Emerald Ash Borer and Asian Longhorned Beetle.

* Please note: While a minimum of 20 participants per class is required, class sizes may be limited due to the host facility and at the instructors request. Be sure to sign up early to get your spot!

Upcoming Classes

  1. Jul 26, 2018, 6:00pm

    Most woodland owners will sell trees out of their woods only once in ther lifetime - maybe twice!  Make sure that the choice you make is good for you and the woods, both today and into the future.  We will cover marketing options and best management practices for the sale. Registration for this class is being handled by the OSU Extension offices in Williams and Defiance County.  Dowload the brochure for more information on how to register for this program.
  2. Aug 17, 2018, 9:00am - 3:00pm

    Most woodland owners today are working to create a healthy, thriving woodland. In this class we will explore those pests that are common in a woodland and don't require extra attention.  We will then look at the pests that aren't common and discuss where and when to get help managing these pests.  This class will help landowners make better informed woodland management decisions..
