Who can see your viewing activity?
this recording will be available somewhere later? I have to leave early...

Hi Leah, yes it will be available but I'm not quite sure where yet; if you'd like to email email@example.com I will make sure you have access to it when it's available!
Please check out this current threat to forests in an op ed at CT Mirror that builds on the GC3 Forests Subgroup report: ‘No net loss!’ Don’t cut down forests to build solar sitesThis should not be a choice between forests and solar. We need them both.https://ctmirror.org/category/ct-viewpoints/no-net-loss-inappropriate-solar-sites-and-forests/
Forest management actually reduces C sequestration: Keeton et al. (2011): young forest (to 80 years) 30.3 ton C/ac; mature forest (80 to 150 years) 53.9 ton/ac; old forest (>150 years) 76.4 ton/ac. Logging reduces climate change power of forests.
Are there any specific concerns to the health of CT Forests? (pests, drought etc.)
how does the $3 billion and 16K jobs compare to other sectors? In other words is it really huge compared to other sectors and how do you think it should/can grow?
I am skeptical of the claim about human health. It seems that outdoor recreation in rural areas is largely a middle-upper class white hobby. We do it partly because it's a cultural belief that it's healthy and reflects certain values. But middle to upper class white people don't have the pervasive health risks that lower income communities of color suffer from . Can you complicate this issue a bit? How can a forester work to bridge the gap in access and presumed health for all communities both in urban and rural settings?
also hi Frank!
can you elaborate impact of heavy charcoal industry and Oak Trees, as well as types?

Assisted migration is bioengineering. Let the trees adapt as we work to mitigate the problem. For instance, look up epigenetics - adaption within the lifespan of a tree (or other spp.).
there is value in all aged and sized trees. there is some overlap, and also different functions/needs met by the different age/size classes
yes, absolutely. there is value in all aged and sized trees. there is some overlap, and also different functions/needs met by the different age/size classes
Thank you, everyone, for this outstanding presentation!
Forestry simplifies forests. Most C sequestration, most complexity, and highest biodiversity in unmanaged forest ecosystems.
Harry White? Hello from Hallie Metzler at Rebekah’s Hill in Goshen.
Very informative presentation. Thanks, everyone!
I read your thesis.
(Andrea's thesis). Yes, let's talk Andrea! Please.
Thank you for this presentation!
Thank you all.
