Too Much, Too Little or Just Right?
Forest regeneration in fire-adapted landscapes

May 5, 2022

Co-hosted by Rocky Mountain Research Station and Southwest Ecological Restoration Institutes

Join RMRS and the SWERIs for an upcoming land-manager-focused LIGHTNING TALK webinar dedicated to forest regeneration and reforestation in western fire-adapted forests. Short science presentations will highlight what is happening with regeneration following fire and forest treatments plus considerations and tools for reforestation. Discussion and Q&A during this session will facilitate information exchange between scientists and managers.
