Description

FOR 4033: “Silviculture and Management of Hardwoods” is an optional, senior-level course taught in the School of Renewable Natural Resources at Louisiana State University. The primary goal of this course is to make students more knowledgeable and appreciative of hardwood resources. A secondary goal is to make students as competitive as possible for all hardwood employment opportunities. These goals are accomplished by assisting students in learning various aspects of the ecology, silviculture, and management of hardwood ecosystems. This knowledge is then integrated into a silviculture plan for a non-industrial private forest landowner based on his or her ownership objectives. Emphasis is placed on timber utilization, wildlife habitats, and recreation in bottomland hardwood ecosystems given the abundance of this resource in Louisiana and the southern United States.
