Dates announced for 19th Biennial Southern Silvicultural Research Conference

Recently, meeting organizers announced that the 19th Biennial Southern Silvicultural Research Conference will be held on March 14-16, 2017 at Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, Virginia. An associated field trip will focus on silviculture of Appalachian hardwoods.

Initiated in 1980, The Biennial Southern Silvicultural Research Conference provides a forum for scientists and practitioners actively engaged in the broad field of silviculture to report their study results, to present new concepts and techniques, to discuss topics of mutual interest, to coordinate cooperative efforts, and to stay current on developments in the field. Scientists, foresters, landowners, and others have found the conferences and the proceedings to be valuable sources of information on current and developing trends in southern silviculture.

The 2017 meeting is being jointly planned by the USDA Forest Service’s Southern Research Station and the Department of Forest Resources and Environmental Conservation at Virginia Tech. The organizers will issue additional details about the Conference and a formal call for presentations and posters by early fall 2016.
