Timber Hurricane DamageForest landowners in Florida are all too familiar with the devastation and loss of life and property that can accompany a hurricane event. While hurricanes have always been a threat to this region, the threat posed by hurricanes is growing. As ocean temperatures continue to rise, hurricane intensity is likely to increase. Hurricanes in coming years may be stronger and slower moving storms that produce destructive winds and flooding. To help landowners enhance their resiliency and productivity in the face of this threat, this webinar series will provide some steps that can be taken to better prepare for and recover from hurricane events.
