Whether you’re interested in harvesting timber on your property or are just curious about the logging operations you see in your area, this seminar is for you.

Co-hosted by the Wilton Conservaiton Commission.

Harvesting timber can be a once lifetime activity for most landowners. No single activity has such power to significantly improve or degrade your forest. Proper harvesting can provide income, improve wildlife habitat, create trails, better access, and open up beautiful views. With proper planning, consulting with professionals who have a thorough understanding of our forests, these outcomes can be achieved while maintaining a healthy and vigorous forest. Join the Wilton Conservation Commission and UNH Cooperative Extension’s Hillsborough County Forester to learn about forest management. The county forester will explain the basics of why timber is harvested and how our forests are managed.

Topics will include:

  • How to balance forest management objectives with wildlife habitat or recreation goals
  • How working with a licensed forester can help you achieve your goals
  • Steps to ensure a successful timber sale
  • Where you can turn for more help

This seminar will last about 45 minutes, but participants are encouraged to come with questions or topics for further discussion.
