Forest Tree and Plant Propagation Workshop

Posted: February 27, 2017

At the Thursday, March 9, 2017, meeting of the Cumberland Woodland Owners Association, Matt Kern, PA DCNR Bureau of Forestry Service Forester, will speak on methods for “Forest Tree and Plant Propagation.”

Pennsylvania Forest Stewards, Rodger and Priscilla Waldman, will also speak that evening on wildflower propagation from seeds. The meeting will be held at 7:00 P.M. at the Cumberland County Extension Office which is located at 310 Allen Road in Carlisle. You do not have to be a member and there is no cost to attend.

Rodger and Priscilla Waldman are also involved with Mid-Atlantic Ecological Landscapes or MAEscapes. MAEscapes was created to demonstrate conservation landscaping principles and techniques. The habitats created encourage diversity of native wildlife and have the additional benefits of lower cost and less maintenance.

More information on MAEscapes is available online.

Propagating plants can be an inexpensive and easy way to get new plants from plants you already have. There are a variety of plant propagation methods and techniques. The technique you select will depend on the type of plant you wish to propagate and the amount of time and effort you want to put into it.

The Cumberland Woodland Owners Association is an organization of forestland owners and others interested in forestry issues in south central Pennsylvania.
