LDAF to hold Forest Productivity Program workshops

Anyone wanting to find out more about the Forest Productivity Program through the Louisiana Department of Agriculture and Forestry have opportunities to attend any of two workshops in Alexandria and Amite.

The Forest Productivity Program is a cost-sharing program that helps private forest landowners with tree crops. It helps with costs of forestry practices that improve tree stands, prepare or replant.

The training is open to anyone that would like to learn more about the Forest Productivity Program.  Specifically, the application process, the deadlines, practices and proposed changes.  

One FPP workshop will be held from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. Oct. 23 at the Dean Lee Research Station at LSUA.

The other will be held from 2 to 4 p.m. Oct. 25 at the LSU AgCenter Amite Extension Office.

Attendees must RSVP by calling Jeannine at 225-925-4500.
