Wednesday, March 16, 2011, 11:00 AM (Eastern)
Featuring Eric Seaborn and Felicia Andre, Massachusetts Dept of Environmental Conservation and John Parry and Bill Frament, USDA Forest Service Northeastern Area
Please plan to join us for this March UNRI Informational Webcast, which will introduce the use of aerial sketch mapping as a useful tool in planning, planting and reforestation efforts in Worcester, Massachusetts, which has been devastated by the infestation of Asian Longhorned Beetles (ALB). This web session will feature an overview of the use of the sketch mapping protocols developed by the Forest Service in Durham, New Hampshire in cooperation with the MA Dept of Conservation and Recreation, the City of Worcester, MA and APHIS. This web session will be of interest to a wide variety of disciplines, since it provides technical and strategic information related to responding to tree planting in a community. Please join us to learn more about this direct application of new tools and technologies in an important and relevant manner.
