regeneration, technical tools for
foresters, regional workshops and
state oak implementation projects.
In addition to the growing
demand for white oak logs, the
species is under pressure from
widespread insect infestation,

disease, climate change and
inadequate forest management,
which has led to dense, low-quality
stands that block oak regeneration.
To address these issues, the
White Oak Initiative is planning
an ambitious outreach effort to

family forest owners throughout
the central hardwoods region.
The group wants to make private
landowners aware of the threats
facing white oak and the crucial
role they can play in promoting
regeneration. By helping them
connect with foresters and access
resources like EQIP, the White Oak
Initiative is seeking to empower
family forest owners to take action.
Kayti Brinkman, AFF's Northern
Region tree farm manager, said
the goal of the White Oak Initiative
is to eventually have ongoing
conservation projects in all 17
targeted states.
"The White Oak Initiative is
unique because it's coming from
end users of the product who
want us to come up with solutions
with family forest owners to help
sustain white oak into the future,"
Brinkman said. "We know we
have landowners in the 17-state
partnership that are already doing
these things, so we're looking for
ways to amplify what they're doing
and get that message out to other
landowners who aren't engaged so
they can be part of the solution."b

The White Oak Initiative and the US Forest Service on two
coordinated landscape scale restoration (LSR) grants.
