Oak and Fire in Minnesota forests

Oak forests and savannas provide valuable ecosystem services including timber production and wildlife habitat. Historically, fire has played an important role in the development, maintenance, and distribution of oak forests across Minnesota and the Upper Midwest. This webinar will focus on the advantages and limitations of using fire in oak-dominated forests, drawing on results from long-term experiments and evidence of fire over the past centuries.

Today, the Foundation partners with Cooperative Extension through liaison roles and a formal plan of work with the Extension Committee on Organization and Policy (ECOP) to increase system capacity while providing programmatic services, and helping Extension programs scale and investigate new methods and models for implementing programs.
