Woodland owners will build skills for caring for their trees through a Forest Stewardship Coached Planning course 6-9 p.m. Tuesdays, March 29 – May 17, at the WSU Snohomish County Extension Cougar Auditorium, 600 128th Street SE in Everett. A field day will be Saturday, April 30.

Presented by Washington State University Extension, the course costs $185 before March 16 and $215 thereafter. Pre-registration is required. To register or learn more, visit http://forestry.wsu.edu/nps/events/cpsnoco/ or contact WSU Extension Forestry at 206-263-1128.

The course teaches owners of wooded property how to assess their trees, avoid insect and disease problems, enhance wildlife habitat, get a fair deal when selling logs and take practical steps so their woods provide enjoyment for years to come.

Participants will develop a personalized Forest Stewardship Plan, which qualifying landowners can use to lower their property taxes.
