Beech Control – 5 Years Later


Colony Mine Road
(1/4 mile west of Cobb Hill Road intersection)
Alstead, NH 03602
United States

Join us for a tour of a woodlot that has been managed since the early 80’s and was most recently treated in 2016. We will hear from NH Licensed Forester, Peter Renzelman, about past timber stand improvement and American beech control treatments. We will observe the outcomes of these treatments five years later and discuss strategies to promote regeneration of oak and other hardwood species and protecting residual growing stock. This event will be a follow up to the 2016 event at the same location.
