Ginseng is one of Pennsylvania’s most valuable woodland crops.

During this webinar, Dr. Eric Burkhart from Shaver’s Creek Environmental Center discusses basic horticultural aspects of the crop, as well as economic considerations. Forest crop tree management and silviculture, including how to manipulate the forest canopy to promote ginseng crops and salvage trees killed by invasive insects, such as the Emerald Ash Borer, are also discussed.
