|New England Forestry Foundation: Introduction to the Marteloscope|
April 17, 2014 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at NEFF's Allen-Whitney Forest in Manchester, Maine
| ||The marteloscope is a teaching tool that provides quick access to real data about a certain stand of trees to feed discussion about silvicultural decision-making. It has value not only as a discussion forum for new and seasoned foresters, but also for educating landowners and the public about the thought process of foresters and natural resource managers.|
The marteloscope concept was originally produced in Europe, where there are now several dozen martelodromes installed. They are used in conjunction with larger research programs, for training foresters, and for developing silvicultural policies.
Participation limited to 20. CFE credits pending. Please RSVP to
