What will you learn?
This webinar will discuss how longleaf landowners can balance income from pine straw harvesting while also preserving critical wildlife benefits of straw-harvested stands. Balancing the economic and environmental benefits of pine straw can be challenging to landowners and natural resource scientists alike, as maximizing one can compromise the other. Developed with input from a technical committee of wildlife and longleaf experts, the draft Best Management Guidelines (BMGs) presented in this discussion offer practical guidance to how pine straw harvesting can be integrated into a larger management system that minimizes impacts to wildlife while allowing forest owners to earn important income before thinning, and eventually transitioning to an open, fire-maintained, woodland-savanna condition that can be particularly favorable to wildlife. We will be seeking feedback and discussion on the proposed BMGs at the conclusion of the webinar.

BMGs can be accessed at: online.nwf.org/pinestrawbmg
