February 20: More than Timber: Income Opportunities from Non-timber Forest Products There are a range of possibilities to generate income from your woodlands that depend on your location, forest type and more, that are compatible with timber management too. In this session, learn more about the opportunities to generate income from your woodlands.

February 27: Launching your Woodland Legacy: Intact, In Forest and In Family Ownership Most woodland owners cite legacy as one of their main reasons for owning land, and a large majority express concern over their ability to keep the land intact.
