New website helps small forestland owners

The Institute for Culture and Ecology (IFCAE) announces a new website to help small forestland owners develop commercial nontimber forest product resources on their land. The website is free to use, requires no registration, and contains extensive public domain resources including hundreds of extension articles, thousands of photographs, dozens of videos, and a species database with over 1,400 commercially harvested species in the U.S. Landowners will find links to companion sites as well as key business directories like the Oregon Forest Industry Directory. The publications section contains how-to articles on medicinal plants, native seed gathering, wild foods, floral greens, as well as practical tools like the Google Earth training exercise which teaches the basics of land mapping in less than three hours.
