Join us as we explore the forest types found near us here in West Michigan with Rod Denning. We’ll talk about what kind of trees and vegetation are common in the forests, how they are typically managed, and some common threats to forest health.
Rod has a B.S. in Forestry from Michigan State University and a M.A. in Geography from Western Michigan University. He is retired from Grand Valley State University – Annis Water Resources Institute and currently one of twenty district foresters across the state who work for the Michigan Forestry Assistance Program (Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development). Rod’s service area includes Oceana, Newaygo, and Muskegon counties, and his home office is at the Oceana Conservation District in Shelby.
