Virtual Green Drinks – July
July 9 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Hendersonville, NC – On Thursday, July 9th, Virtual Hendersonville Green Drinks continues with a presentation from Andy Tait, EcoForestry Director at EcoForesters. EcoForesters is a non-profit professional forestry organization dedicated to conserving and restoring our Appalachian forests. In his talk, Andrew will discuss how forests become degraded whether due to invasive pests, poor timber management, fire exclusion or climate change and how “forest stand improvement work” can make degraded forests healthier.
