Silvics and Silviculture Tour of Bent Creek

Sophomores in the Forest Management Technology program recently visited Bent Creek Experimental Forest to study the application upland hardwood silvicultural treatments used throughout the Southern Appalachians. Bent Creek Experimental Forest is the oldest federal experimental forest east of the Mississippi river and was established in 1925 for the purpose of conducting research on silvicultural practices that would aid in the rehabilitation of cutover, abused lands and promote sustainable forestry, and also to provide a field demonstration of forest management practices.
