This webinar is brought to you by the Ohio Woodlands Stewards (OWS) Program, which offers a variety of resources for woodland owners to grow and develop their forestry skills to apply to their own property. The knowledge gained through OWS programs will lead woodland owners to make better informed decisions when it comes to taking care of their woodland acreage.
