Washington County Neighbor to Neighbor & 2019 Outstanding Tree Farmers of the Year Video Woods Tour
Barrett and Susan are Washington County’s 2019 Outstanding Tree Farmers of the Year. They purchased their property 30 years ago in somewhat poor condition. They have a great story to tell about the challenges associated with owning forestland but after years of learning from other family forest neighbors and others, their 110 acres is now a thriving and productive forest.
Join us on September 23rd, 2020 at 7:00PM via Video Conferencing to watch the premiere of their video woods tour. The video will focus on:
- Stream restoration work on the East Fork of Dairy Creek
- Commercial and pre-commercial thinning
- Working with Natural Resource Conservation Service (NRCS) to improve stands
- Wildlife in the forest
- Recreation and trail building
Registration is required, this can be attended by anyone, it is free to anyone interested in viewing. Click the link below to register.
If you are unable to attend live, the wood tour video and the live premiere will be uploaded to our YouTube channel and posted here on our site as well.
