Chainsaws for Charity (C4C) - November 9, 2018 - New Load of Solar Energy Arrives!

A new mountain of great timber was donated and delivered to the landing today by the Wagner Companies.  We're extremely grateful to our partners at Wagner Hardwoods for their strong and continuing support.  David needed a wide angle lens to capture all of the wood!  There's good work to do on this mountain of logs and Eileen is in the process of scheduling upcoming C4C gatherings.

Ty Bowgren, Rusty VanZile, Brian Mix, Tim (I need to learn your last name!), and Tom Gerow continue to collect and deliver excellent and clean logs for the C4C operation.  This is extremely high-quality material.  Wagner really cares about our forests and forest owners. I'm proud to have them as teammates!

Check out their website (www.wagnerlumber.com/) and call them to see if they might be able to assist you with your forestland goals.  Their website is full of good information.

Wagner hires great people and have great facilities in NY.  Check out this aerial view:

I've toured the facility and it's second to none.  Chainsaws for Charity raises a ton of money for charity and could not do this without Wagner's generosity.  They're a good company.  Thanks Wagner!

New C4C T-shirts arrived in a array of sizes. They make great stocking stuffers and are only $10 when picked up at the landing.  Send me a note if you have interest and we can check on sizes for you.

If you're a NYFOA member and want to have some fun while doing good, please send Eileen a note at dschaefer1@frontiernet.net.  She will place you on the mailing list so that you will be aware of the next event.  If you'd rather just attend the post-firewood social, you're more than welcome!  It really is a fine time for all. 

If you would like to donate working equipment (e.g. hydraulic log splitter, maul, chainsaw, etc) or cash to help defray some expenses, please send me a note (dfaklis@frontiernet.net).  NYFOA and the charities would be grateful.  See  you next time!

Started by Bill Pontius in Woodlot Management Jan 4. 0 Replies

Here's a hypothetical question (hopefully). If an ash stand no longer has sufficient density to qualify for the 480a program following ash borer invasion, and if that stand is necessary for having more than 50 acres for the program, what happens?…Continue
