Red alder can be a vexing species for property owners as older trees quickly become diseased and fall apart, leaving unsightly areas that lack ecological function.

Alder is a critical species near streams, and those selling alder can take advantage of prices that have skyrocketed recently.

Property owners can explore all of these issues and more at Managing Red Alder workshop on Saturday, Sept. 29 at the Meridian Grange in Kent, 15422 SE 272nd St.

Washington State University Extension and King Conservation District will host the full-day workshop, which will feature classroom sessions and a field tour. Topics include alder ecology, management options for over-mature or dying stands, hardwood conversion plans, silviculture, and red alder markets.

The cost to attend is $45/person or $65/couple if registered before Sept. 19; $60/person and $80/couple thereafter. Pre-registration is required and closes September 27th. Registration includes lunch.

To register or learn more, visit forestry.wsu.edu or contact WSU Extension Forestry at 206-263-1128.
