Forestry Tour 2: John Robbins Woodlot, Searsmont
August 24 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Join us for the 2nd tour in our series Working with Your Woodland.
Thursday, August 24, 3-5 p.m. – Jon Robbins Woodlot, Searsmont. Landowner, licensed forester and professional logger Jon Robbins will guide us through his approach to light, commercial thinning, particularly of white pine stands, which he has repeated multiple times over many years. We’ll also look at treatments he’s initiated in younger stands. The results of Jon’s careful, skilled work will provide food for further discussion of planning, silviculture, growth, equipment, and markets for various products. Meet at the property on Moody Mountain Road, approx. 0.7 miles east of the intersection with route 131.
The tours are free and open to the public. They will involve walking in the woods and will occur rain or shine, so please dress for field conditions. Parking is limited so please consider carpooling if you can.
