CDC - Selling and Harvesting Trees Woods-walk

Date: Saturday, October 28th
Time: 10 am - noon
Cost: Free
Location: Tibbits State Forest, Route 7, Hoosick, NY

The woods-walk starts from the main parking lot (just west of the Route 22 intersection) on State Route 7 at 10 a.m. Mike Mulligan, DEC Forester, will be the leader.

Currently there are two timber sales on the forest. One was recently completed and another has been marked but not cut yet. We’ll visit both harvest areas to see “before” and “after”. The primary focus will be “dos and don’ts” of harvesting timber. Mike will answer questions, talk about the science behind forest management and the role of timber harvesting in keeping forests healthy, diverse, and productive.

This public land is open for hiking, hunting, and fishing. Mature trees are also sold by competitive bid are harvested by the successful bidder. Timber harvesting is a way to generate income for all landowners as well as to improve the health and diversity of remaining trees. Most of the timber harvested in New York State comes from privately owned woodlots – not from state or industry land. The wise management of privately owned woodland is important to keep forest land as forest land.
