Webinar: Oak and fire in Minnesota forests


Tuesday, October 25, 2016, noon – 1:00 p.m.

Oak forests and savannas provide valuable ecosystem services including timber production and wildlife habitat. Historically, fire has played an important role in the development, maintenance, and distribution of oak forests across Minnesota and the Upper Midwest. This webinar will focus on the advantages and limitations of using fire in oak-dominated forests, drawing on results from long-term experiments and evidence of fire over the past centuries.
