KWOA is asking everyone in the Woodland Community to respond to the statewide survey recently launched by the Kentucky Cooperative Extension Service and encourage expanded woodland management programming. The survey is a simple ranking of issues and toward the end there is a place to describe other issues in your community that (in your opinion) need practical education and/or assistance. This would be the place to make a request; suggested wording:
“Please expand programming to educate landowners about woodland management practices and the public about the need for this type of management across the state. The future ability of forest resources in Kentucky to provide timber/wood products and ecosystem services to protect environmental quality and provide economic benefits is dependent upon woodland management.”
The survey is open to all Kentucky citizens ages 18 and up. Every voice matters. We hope you’ll take the ten-minute survey and encourage others to do the same.
