Landowners with woods on their property can learn how to assess tree health, get a fair deal when selling logs, prevent insects and diseases, and enhance wildlife habitat in forestry classes that begin March 13.
Classes are 6 to 9 p.m. Thursdays through May 1 at the Rome Grange, 2821 Mount Baker Highway.
Course participants also will develop a personalized forest stewardship plan, which qualifying landowners can use to lower their property taxes.
Cost is $195 per person or couple and includes eight evening classes, a Saturday field trip, reference materials and how-to guides, and a professional forester visit to a participant's property.
Washington State University Extension is offering the course.
