Good Forestry in New Hampshire
Friday, 10/27/2017 (08:45 AM - 03:30 PM)


WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION

The morning inside session will start with an overview of the economic, ecological and social contributions of New Hampshire’s forests; introduce the most common forest types and their ecology; describe the most common silvicultural techniques used to manage New Hampshire forests; and describe ways to integrate silviculture and wildlife habitat management. In the afternoon, we will see silviculture and wildlife habitat management as it is applied in northern hardwoods—the most abundant forest type in in New Hampshire. Instructors Costello, Leak and Yamasaki and many other researchers conduct world-class research on northern hardwood silviculture and silviculture-wildlife interactions at Bartlett. Much of the accepted practice in New England is a result of the research conducted at Bartlett and this will be a unique opportunity to learn or review the basics of good forestry and see how to integrate the latest research in on-the-ground forest management.

Also, Steve Gaines, NHTOA Program Director, will demonstrate directional tree felling, utilizing the open-face notch technique as taught in the NH Professional Logger Program (NH PLP). Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and chainsaw safety features will also be reviewed.

Instruction will include safe removal of hung trees utilizing a three point hitch mounted winch and self-releasing snatch block; winching and skidding to minimize residual stand damage; and safe and efficient log bucking and decking.

NOTE: If you have special needs in order to participate in this program, please contact us 2 weeks in advance of the program date informing us of your need, to allow us time to make the necessary arrangements.

Bridge Building: A Trails Workshop for Volunteers
Saturday, 10/28/2017 (09:00 AM - 03:30 PM)


THE STEWARDSHIP NETWORK: NEW ENGLAND VOLUNTEER TRAINING 

Instructors
Lew Shelley, Snowhawk LLC & Emily Lord, UNH Cooperative Extension     
                                                     

What You’ll Learn
This workshop will cover all the basics of how to build and maintain high-quality bridges for community trails. Perfect for Conservation Commissioners, local service clubs, land trust volunteers, private landowners, or anyone wanting to keep community trails high and dry. You’ll learn terminology about different types of structures like puncheon, stringer bridges, and bog bridges. Building and maintaining bridges can be expensive, so you’ll learn how to answer the first question land mangers ask: Is a bridge the best solution to my problem? You’ll learn how to assess the condition of the trail, and how to deal with water, banks, and recreational uses. This workshop is geared primarily at simple bridges for non-motorized users, but there will be discussion on larger bridges for equestrian and motorized use.

We’ll also have fun, using experiential learning to make sure everyone leaves with new skills. As part of the workshop, we will construct a small foot bridge as a demonstration. You’ll get hands-on experience with specialty tools and learn about options for borrowing tools for your volunteer efforts. We’ll cover safety and leading other volunteers, and how to determine if your trails project requires professional help.

The Emerald Ash Borer and What it Means for You
Friday, 11/03/2017 (07:00 PM - 08:30 PM)

Emerald ash borer (EAB) was first found in New Hampshire in 2013 and has since been confirmed in more than 20 towns in five counties. This exotic insect is widely considered the most destructive forest pest in North America and has killed hundreds of millions of ash trees in the eastern United States. Join Dode Gladders, UNH Cooperative Extension Forester in Sullivan County, and Morgan Dube, Entomologist with the NH Department of Agriculture, to learn what this means for you. Topics will include preparing for EAB's arrival in your town, how to identify infested trees, management options, and the ash quarantine.
