The UGA Trial Garden's Blog
Forestry Commission recently held three
workshops in Gainesville, Marietta and Mansfield to help communities
develop a personalized Community Forest Storm Mitigation Plan that focuses
specifically on trees and ways to avoid or mitigate the damage they
cause during a storm or other catastrophic event. Community Forest Storm
Mitigation plans serve as a guide for assessing current storm readiness,
for creating a summary of your community's current forest management
program and as a storm mitigation checklist. Presentations from the
workshops are available and Georgia Forestry Commission staff are available
to assist your community.
