Make plans BILL WORRELL - FORESTRY Forest Brews Non-timber forest products (NTFPs) refers to products other than timber that are harvested from woodlands. NTFPs include plants, parts of plants, fungi, moss, lichen, herbs, vines, shrubs, parts of trees, and other biological material that are either personally used or sold for their commercial value. We eat NTFPs and use them for medicine. We also use them to make decorations and create specialty products. Not only are many NTFPs marketable, they also are critical for healthy woodland ecosystems. Sustainable harvesting and cultivation of NTFPs through forest farming practices can complement overall stewardship of working forests. A webinar series will highlight the remarkable and diverse world of non-timber forest products, ranging from an overview of the abundance and diversity of NTFPs to forest farming practices focused on particular marketable products. The next webinar is on Forest Brews September 25 at 2:00 PM. A1 Robertson's hard cider is always a 'best seller' at the Tree Farmer Convention and Mike Bums' visits to the American Forest Foundation are always interesting to learn of new brews he has concocted. Both men love exploring and experimenting with every- thing they can find in their forests. Your forest may contain the key ingredients for delicious all natural beverages. Learn how to tap into some non-traditional forest products to create hot, cold, and even adult refreshments. Contact the Extension office if you are interested in participating in this Non-timber Forest Products Webinar Series on September 25, 2014.
