North Carolina Duff Fire Science and Management Workshop

Duff Fire Science and Management Workshop   Wednesday, June 26, 2019 8:15 - 3:30 PM ET. Weymouth Woods Sandhills Nature Preserve Southern Pines, NC 28387   Hosted by the Southern Fire Exchange in cooperation with North Carolina State Parks and Recreation, the US Forest Service, Tall Timbers Research Station, and the Georgia Department of Natural Resources    Cost: $30.00  SAF CFE Credit Expected   Register TODAY to learn about: What is duff? What is it made of? How does it accumulate? Why does it kill trees? What can you do with sites that have heavy duff loads? How do you minimize duff impacts on mature trees?   Event Summary: Join us as we bridge the gap between science and management when it comes to issues related to duff in southeastern upland ecosystems.

This workshop will be a true exchange designed to expose natural resource managers to useful scientific studies and expose scientists to issues and concerns from the perspective of the resource managers. Presentations will include the latest information related to pine mortality associated with duff accumulations and management strategies for mitigating tree losses due to duff build up. Check out the draft workshop agenda here. After a catered lunch we’ll visit a nearby longleaf stand with heavy duff accumulation to discuss strategies, science and options for management success. The field tour will start at approximately 1:00 PM ET and the event will conclude no later than 3:30 PM ET.     Event Registration: Due to space, there are a limited number of registrations available.  Pre-registration for the workshop is required.
