Guidelines for Managing California's Hardwood Rangelands
Workshops for Owners and Managers
Hardwood Range Management Program and the UC Berkeley Center for Forestry
General Program Objectives:
California's hardwood rangelands cover almost 10 million acres and have
biological diversity of any broad habitat in the state. Over 80% of
these lands are
privately owned, providing economic livelihood for a large number of
landowners. Hardwood rangelands, also known as oak woodlands, are composed
of tree overstory of various oak species, and an understory of annual
and perennial grass species. This one day program is designed for owners
and managers of hardwood rangelands, as well as the general public and
policy makers with an interest in conservation of hardwood rangelands.
The program will focus on the current state of knowledge about economic,
ecological, and managerial relationships on hardwood ranagelands, focusing
particularly on the UC handbook, "Guidelines for Managing California's
Hardwood Rangelands." All registrants will receive a copy
of this handbook. The program will also discuss local and statewide
hardwood rangeland conservation policy issues, and methods to develop
management plans for hardwood rangeland parcels.
