Gap Mountain Timber Harvest Tour
Saturday, 01/13/2018 (10:00 AM - 01:00 PM)

 

Join forestry professionals at Gap Mountain for a public tour of a working timber harvest and introduction the basics of conducting a well-planned, careful timber harvest operation.

 

The Forest Society will be conducting a timber harvest on a 50 acres portion of the 1,120 acre Gap Mountain Forest Reservation in Troy and Jaffrey. The harvest is located on the south side of Gap Mountain off Fern Hill Road. The area includes a portion of the Metacomet to Monadnock Trail. This harvest includes prescribed thinning, patch cuts and group selection to favor growth of oak, pine and mixed hardwoods along a network of skid trails radiating from a central landing. We will tour compartments within the harvest area, discuss goals and operating considerations. Learn which trees are marked to be cut and why. Learn from foresters. Meet the logger.  On the landing we’ll discuss regional wood markets, log pricing by tree species, grade and the wood products produced.

 

Directions and field trip-specific information will be provided to all registrants.
