2008 Central States
Forest Soils Conference
Name
Join us in Ohio for the 28th annual Central States Forest Soils Conference!
Company
The theme for this year’s conference is ‘Change’. Join us and explore the impact emerald ash borer will have
on Ohio’s forests and management strategies to minimize that impact and how the soils influence those
strategies. Learn how forests and forest soils ‘change’ as the landscape is converted from an old growth
forest, to a second growth forest, to an agriculture field. And finally, explore the changes that occur to soils in
the urban environment, and how urban soils and other urban environmental factors influence the survival,
growth and performance of urban trees and forests.
