Growth Model User’s Group: Did you hear that GMUG will get a “reboot” in 2020? The Growth Model User’s Group (GMUG) was first organized in the year of Y2K to bring together many of the leading regional characters and first-time users to discuss and learn about building, improving, and applying growth models in their work. With many decades of forest modeling experience and a network of collaborators, LandVest’s Weikko Jaross and Woodland Creek’s Kevin Ceder are teaming up to host the virtual reboot on April 5th, 2022. The Western Forestry and Conservation Organization will be sending out communications requesting input on topics of interest ahead of the meeting as Weikko and Kevin finalize the agenda and venue. We are looking forward to a stellar line up of presenters, relevant topics and participation.
