WFL - Program: “Understanding Forest Succession“

Forester Bruce Robinson, familiar to many of us, will be giving a talk, “Understanding Forest Succession“. Bruce maintains that such understanding can help us improve and/or maintain forests - no matter how high-graded they might have been.


The event will be hosted by Gary Burley at his family’s East Hill Creamery, 346 South Main Street, Perry, NY. There will be a provided fondue lunch featuring the French cheese made on site. Gary notes, “We are going to use our delicious cheese to make fondue for folks to enjoy for lunch after Bruce’s talk. Again this space is amazing. It’s the second floor of our cheese plant. Made of actual post and beam of red oak and hemlock rafters out of our woodlot. Milled by the Amish in Belfast and mortise & tenon and raised by another Amish family.”

On June 2nd (see here) there will be a subsequent tour of the woodlot which supplied the building materials for the structure

Start time for this March 24th talk is 10:00 AM.

Please RSVP to Gary at or (585) 237-3622.
