To Live or Die! A Post Fire Tree Assessment Workshop by Pepperwood Foundation and Sonoma County Resource Conservation District
***The 9:45am-12pm session is sold out. A second session (same program) has been added in the afternoon from 1:45pm-4pm due to popular demand!***
How can you tell if one of the trees on your property is dead or alive after the fire? Once you identify a dead tree, should you leave it or have it cut down?
At this workshop, you join local expert foresters to learn how to assess trees damaged by fire including oaks, firs, redwoods, bays, and madrones and learn steps you can take to help your property rebound. A short classroom presentation will be followed by a walk to observe trees damaged by the Tubbs Fire at Pepperwood.
Light refreshments will be served at the start of each session. Please dress to be outdoors, as the class will contain a field component and will occur rain or shine.
The workshop will include presentations from Greg Giusti, Michael Gillogly, and Anya Starovoytov.
Greg Giusti is a registered professional forester and former employee of the UC Cooperative Extension. Greg's understanding of wildland fire impacts to forests and trees comes from working directly in the Sonoma Valley, Clayton, Redwood Valley, Napa, and Sonoma fire areas over the past three years. He will share his observations and experiences in determining tree mortality, vigor, and survivability.
Michael Gillogly is the Preserve Manager at Pepperwood Preserve. Michael has lived and worked at Pepperwood for 23 years and offers a unique perspective on how the Tubbs fire moved through the preserve and the resulting impacts on the forest environment.
Anya Starovoytov is the Project Manager for the Sonoma Resource Conservation District. Anya has worked within federal, state, and local organizations for nearly 12 years focusing on soil science and natural resource conservation. She will discuss Do's and Dont's of erosion control on fire-impacted properties.
We look forward to seeing you there!
