White Pine Harvest: Walk With A Forester
Have you been noticing the orange marks on many of our trees surrounding the center? Forester Ed McGuire has been planning a harvest for a few pine stands on Goodwin property. Come for a walk to learn about different forest management techniques, harvesting safety, and how silviculture impacts the harvest plan. Also learn why the harvest is planned in winter, and what the expected results are. This is an outdoor program, please dress for the weather.
This event is jointly sponsored by the Connecticut Forest & Park Association (CFPA), Connecticut Department of Energy & Environmental Protection (CT DEEP) Division of Parks, and Friends of Goodwin Forest.
The James L. Goodwin Forest and Conservation Education Center were gifts to the people of Connecticut from James L. Goodwin, one of America's first professional foresters and a long-time CFPA Board Member. The Center is jointly managed by the Connecticut Forest & Park Association (CFPA) and the Connecticut Department of Energy & Environmental Protection (CT DEEP) Division of Parks.
