Woodlots are a common feature of most farms in the Eastern US and are often overlooked for the value they might bring to the landowner and to farm enterprises. During this course, we will examine the methods to assess forest resources and discuss common woodland activities such as cutting firewood, harvesting logs for mushroom cultivation, and support for wildlife and long-term forest health.

Online courses are led by expert farmers and extension educators, who guide students through the latest research-based information to help improve efficiency and increase profit on small farms. Students connect with other farmers, work on farm plans, and gain practical tips without leaving their home. Course content can be accessed anywhere with a high-speed internet connection.

As a result of this course participants will be able to:

- Make informed decisions, knowing what actions the owner can pursue and what activity they should contract through a forester

- Describe the type, quality and potential of woodlands on your property

- Connect attributes of the land correspond to the interests and needs of the owner for common woodland products of value

- List resources available to inform their decision-making

- Be able to select trees that can be grown for a future crop and remove trees useful for firewood
