Forest managers are constantly under pressure to remove wood from forests because of the danger it poses as a fuel source for fires. However, the current practices of controlled burning, basic wood chipping, or wholesale removal of the wood from the forest have their own problems. Our speaker, Jeff Ravage will talk about his investigation into the use myco-remediation in forest mitigation practices, which is currently entering its fourth year. The goal of this project is to revolutionize the way forest managers deal with woody debris, and provide an opportunity for forest soils to recover by retaining the nutrients naturally locked away in wood.
