Past Events

April 4-5, 2017: Missouri Woodland Conference
Missouri chapter co-sponsored the the meeting in Jefferson City. Forty chapter members attended with 105 registered. The room was packed with woodland experts, so no landowner should have returned home without all their questions asked and answered! There were five exhibitors: Forest and Woodland Association of Missouri, Grow Native, Missouri Department of Agriculture, Walnut Council, the Missouri Nut Growers Association and the University of Missouri Center of Agroforestry. Sponsors and presenters were able to network with an interesting group of woodland landowners from several states who were a little unsure what we all had in common when it comes to managing trees. Read more about the conference in the May issue of “Green Horizons”.
