Threatened & Endangered Species, Special Sites and High Conservation Value Forests (HCVF) are unique and important resources elements in managing your Tree Farm. Protecting these resources is also included in the 2010-2015 ATFS Standards of Sustainability for ATFS Certification. But, how are these resources defined and where can Tree Farmers learn more about them? During this session, we will explore the range of tools and resources available for identifying these interesting resource elements and discuss techniques for integrating them into your forest management plan and activities.
