Firewood From Private Woodlands. A ForestConnect Webinar from Cornell University.

Wednesday, September 16, 2015.  Live at noon, and repeated at 7PM for an hour each session.

When woodlot owners report their activities, one of the most common is the collection of firewood for personal use.  Many owners also sell some firewood.  Woodlot owners should consider their scale of production, what equipment they have or can borrow, what trees to select, how to fell trees to optimize production and safety, logistics and options for bucking and moving, and how to handle and store the wood.  Some legal considerations apply to owners who sell and deliver firewood.  

Instructions:

  1. Read all these instructions.
  2. You need a personal registration ID to join this month’s webinar.  There is unlimited space for participants, the ID simply provides you the necessary access code.  Obtain your registration ID via:    https://cornell.webex.com/cornell/onstage/g.php?d=640837588&t=a   If prompted for a password, use C0rne11F0rest   (the word “CornellForest” except the o = zero= 0 and L = the number 1
  3. On the webpage where the above link takes you, look for the option to “register” to receive your “registration id” number.  Note this page also includes the option to download resources related to this webinar (if available).
  4. Wait for the email that contains your personal “registration id” number (a couple minutes at most usually).
  5. Pasted below is an example of the email you will receive after following the preceding steps.
  6. As illustrated in my example below, join the webinar via the “click here” button to open into your default web browser (e.g., Internet Explorer or Firefox).  The “click here” button should open into the webinar, or display a page indicating the webinar is not active.  If the webinar is not active, that means the host isn’t connected and you will need to wait until the host connects.  If the page opens into a rather generic “Cisco WebEx” page then your browser may not be compatible with WebEx and you should copy and paste the full link (see example below, it follows “click here”) into an alternate web browser.  Using an alternate web browser usually solves most connection problems.
  7. Test the sound capacity of your computer by accessing a website with sound (e.g., video clip on a news website, Youtube, etc.). 
  8. As you enter the webinar, you may be asked to test your media player.  If so, you will need to complete that step.
  9. As you enter the webinar, you will be given the option to download software; you can bypass that step and enter the webinar directly.  I’m not aware of any problems that have arisen from downloading the software (which streamlines subsequent access, but you should make this decision for yourself.

SAF CFE credits have been requested or have been approved.  Approved for 1 credit of category 2
