Course Overview

*This is the third of six Intensive Course sessions, and can be purchased individually or as part of the Full Bundle. Session 1 is a recommended prerequisite for subsequent sessions


Presenter: Larry Weaner, FAPLD

An ecology-based approach to woodland design is more like guiding a vegetative process than implementing a static planting plan. Guided succession can foster the orderly transformation from an open field to a multi-tiered forest through planting, managed natural recruitment, or a combination of the two. Under existing canopy, where few herbaceous species can be established through direct seeding, we will discuss the planting of small “seed source colonies,” and management strategies to encourage their proliferation into the larger landscape. Management techniques that are unique to woodlands including selective height cutting, sunlight manipulation, and assisted seed dispersal, will also be described in detail.

Attendees will receive a 100+ page, login-protected course manual.

Applicable Regions: Eastern and Midwestern U.S. (Florida excluded).

Note: This course will have some repeated information from previous intensive design short courses.
