VWA is pleased to sponsor the following event in collaboration with Northwoods Stewardship Center.

Low Impact Timber Harvest Demonstration

Saturday, October 25th   9am-12pm       $10

Cutting trees doesn’t have to leave your forest in disrepair! This workshop will guide you through a small-scale logging operation to see conscientious silviculture partnered with low-impact tractor winching and forwarding equipment. This system leaves a light footprint on the lands, and is now available as part of NorthWoods’ forest management consulting services! Come prepared to be outdoors and hike on rough trails.

To register for above workshops, call 802-723-6551 x115, or visit the Events page on the Northwoods website.
