Soil & Water Conservation District to host 'woodlot' workshop


Warren County Soil and Water to host ‘Woodlot Ownership Workshop”


If you own forested property in Warren County, or are thinking about owning a woodlot, Warren County Soil and Water Conservation District (WCSWCD) wants you to know about two upcoming events that can help you make informed decisions.

WCSWCD will present a “Woodlot Ownership Workshop” on Saturday, June 3, 2023, hosted by SUNY Adirondack’s campus in Queensbury.

The seminar will include nine speakers who will cover topics such as the rationale behind owning a woodlot, costs, role of the New York State Forest Owners Association, availability of planning and management assistance and more.

Jim Lieberum, WCSWCD District Manager, said: “Our region has experienced a significant turnover of land ownership in recent years, and this workshop has been developed to introduce attendees to information that can assist them in making informed decisions and learn where to go for forestry assistance.”

Registration is required, and those interested in attending should register by May 26. There is a $10 fee. Go to to register online, or mail payment and attendee names to:
