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. Feb 10, 2023, 10:00am - 12:00pm

    Join OSU’s Kayla Perry, State Extension Specialist - Forest Entomology  as we talk Emerald ash borer (EAB; Agrilus planipennis).  EAB has caused widespread decline and death of ash trees throughout eastern North America since it was first detected in southeastern Michigan in 2002. This presentation will provide an update on the distribution, management, and ecological impacts of EAB, with a focus on forests that have experienced the longest duration of invasion by this insect.   ISA and SAF credits available
  2. Mar 18, 2023, 8:30am - 3:30pm

    This workshop is an annual event for landowners in the tri-state area.  Experts from Ohio, Indiana and Kentucky collaborate each year to put together a program that is geared towards meeting landowners needs.  Topics often include those up and coming issues that woodland owners are dealing with or will have to deal with at some time in the future.
