Guide to Noxious Plants

"I am FAR from an expert in diagnosing Dutch Elm Disease, but most of the trees I've seen with it are well beyond the sapling stage. Most of the ones on my property were 4-6" DBH before they started showing signs ans dying off. BTW - I…"

Arranging a Timber Sale and Timber Sale Contracts

Timber sales are relatively uncommon for most woodland owners, yet most properties are harvested at some point.  Harvests are infrequent, potentially of high value, and are unique in that the harvest puts the next crop at risk. Timber harvests need to have a written contract, but what details should be included in a process that isn't standardized.A webinar on this topic will be offered on Wednesday July 20, 2016 through ForestConnect.  The webinar is an hour long and will be live at noon and…See More
