Mechanized Harvesting: How productive is your operation?
(08:00 AM - 03:00 PM)

As the cost of machinery continues to increase, and the cost of fuel, tires and oil increases,
wouldn’t it be interesting to know if you are getting the most out of your forestry equipment? This two part workshop will involve looking at recently gathered productivity numbers for mechanized harvesting equipment in the Northeast. Attendees will work with Jeff Benjamin, Ph.D., a professor of Forestry Operations at University of Maine-Orono, to
understand “Productivity per Machine Hour” numbers. A site visit to an active logging job will allow attendees to learn the techniques of gathering machine productivity data and how they can use that information in their own operations. There will also be time dedicated to discussing what happens when you add a second skidder or other piece of equipment to an operation, and other possible operational scenarios. Both cut-to-length and whole-tree harvesting operations will be discussed.

 

CEUs:  8.0 PLP Certification credits

            6.5 Category 2 Forester Licensing Credits

Identifying the Ferns
(09:00 AM - 04:00 PM)

This fern identification workshop will be held at the Kingman Farm on route 155 in Durham. It is intended to teach natural resource professionals the skills necessary to positively identify the ferns of northeastern New England. A combination of indoor and outdoor instruction will be used to teach participants about basic fern terminology, morphology, reproduction, hybridization, and ecology. These skills will then be employed to identify ferns in the field using a fern key. Highlights include strategies and suggestions for identification within some of the more difficult fern groups, and a thorough discussion of the challenges presented by fern hybridization. During the field portion of the course participants will see many of the most common local species of ferns discussed in the lecture, and gain experience keying in situ. Participants of all experience levels are encouraged to attend. The required text is: Fern Finder: A Guide to Native Ferns of Central and Northeastern United States and Eastern Canada by Hallowell & Hallowell. Students are asked to purchase this text themselves from their preferred bookseller and bring it with them to the workshop.
