Here are a couple of interesting stories I have seen lately discussing trees and forestry. Virginia Tech News posted a story about how researchers at Virginia Tech are using our knowledge about recent climate trends to predict the growth of loblolly pines through the middle of this century. This will be of benefit to foresters who are planting new forests and need to know what to expect over the lifetime of the trees. You can read that at https://vtnews.vt.edu/articles/2018/07/cnre-ecologicalforecast.html.
The Southern Region Extension Forestry group posted a notice about a new online class that is being offered this fall on “Tools, Technology, and Techniques for a Successful Extension Natural Resources Career.” It will be offered on Tuesdays from 1-2 PM Eastern Time from September 11 through December 4.
