The Trenton Woodlot Conference – on November 24 – is a top-notch forestry event in eastern Ontario, providing expert information and guidance on woodlot/forest management, and hosted by the Hastings Stewardship Council. An interactive field trip will get participants out in the woods. The keynote speaker, Dr. Warren Mabee, will present Seeing the Forest for the Trees: The Role of Woodlots in Ontario Environmental Strategies. Also at the conference, professional foresters Steve D’Eon and Ken Elliot will present Nudging your Hardwood Stands toward Old-growth Status. They will give a photographic tour of Ontario’s rare hardwood old-growth sites dominated by towering maple, beech, and eastern hemlock.
