Forest Walk stops in Normanskill

Forest Owners Association looks to promote knowledge of responsible festry

— “(There are) Many reasons why people own forested land,” he said. “Some use it to hunt, some want it for aesthetic purposes and some use it for income. Whether they want to control their deer population or bring in song birds, for example, a forester can help bring in a knowledgeable logger to make those things happen.”

Kehoe said its important to hire a logger who knows the science behind forest management in order to take out the appropriate materials to get the desired results.

The walk will take place on Wednesday, May 15, at 6:30 p.m. at 3 Normanskill Blvd. To participate contact Jill Knapp at 436-6346.
