Benton County chapter selected Ed Easterling and his Crestmont Farm Family of contiguous properties as BSWA Tree Farmer of the Year 2020.
Postponed by COVID, the tour has been rescheduled to one morning tour and one afternoon tour on September 18, 2021.
There will be more information forthcoming when reservations open.
These will be two identical tours (afternoon and morning) which will include:
- A one-mile walk on a finished trail with moderate slope through a plantation thinned and pruned in 2018
- A hardwood/fir woodland thinned in 2018
- An oak savannah hillside commenced in 2015.
Participants will see an area that encapsulates many of the practices that Crestmont uses on much of its 1,600 acres, including the beneficial effects of silvopasture grazing with cattle to reduce fire risk, enhance wildflowers, and facilitate the control of invasive species.
