Tim Fleury, forestry field specialist and county forester.

If you own property that includes a substantial wooded area, and would like to learn more  about best practices of woodland management, plan to attend an outdoor forestry workshop on  Saturday, June 29, from 9 AM to noon, beginning at the far end of Tucker Mountain Road (not far beyond the Tucker Mountain Schoolhouse) in East Andover.

Free and open to the public, the workshop  and woodland walk will be led by Tim Fleury, forestry field specialist and county forester with the Merrimack County office of the University of New Hampshire Cooperative Extension.  Topics to be covered will include timber marking, selective harvesting and sales.

Sponsored by the Andover Conservation Commission, the workshop is part of a statewide UNH Extension effort at “making the state’s key industries stronger, developing vibrant communities and municipal leaders, fostering healthy families and an informed and engaged citizenry, and keeping the state’s natural resources healthy and productive.”

The workshop will be held rain or shine.

Directions:  From State Route 11 in East Andover, turn onto Maple Street at the intersection opposite the Andover Community Church about midway between Andover village and Franklin.  From Maple Street, turn right onto Tucker Mountain Road just beyond the Highland Lake Inn (just over a quarter-mile). Park at the turnaround at the very end of Tucker Mountain Road.
