Upcoming Event

2015 Biennial Southern Silvicultural Research Conference

March 2, 2015–March 5, 2015

Sponsored by the USDA Forest Service, Southern Research Station and the University of Tennessee, Department of Forestry, Wildlife and Fisheries

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 anyone else related to forest management have found the conferences and their proceedings to be valuable sources of information on current and developing trends in southern silviculture.

Presentations emphasize research in: pine silviculture; nutritional amendments; vegetation management; site preparation; pine natural and artificial regeneration; hardwood natural and artificial regeneration; intermediate treatments; midstory competition control, growth and yield; water quality; forest health; fire; economics; and wildlife ecology.

The event will include four concurrent sessions, a poster session, and an optional field tour.
