Come join the Federation of Nova Scotia Woodland Owners on Saturday, June 3 for our Woodlot Mentorship Field Day, near Kemptown, Colchester County, from 10am to 2:00pm where we will visit a recent commercial thinning site on a private woodlot.
Topics covered will include: operational issues and constraints, job layout, crop tree selection, stand growth and yield and the dollars and cents of the treatment. You can also try out some tree measurement tools or check out some smartphone applications for navigation and recording GPS information
This event is part of a woodlot mentorship program creating opportunities for family forest owners to learn from each other, and give experienced owners a chance to share their knowledge. The program is a partnership between the Federation of Nova Scotia Woodland Owners, Mersey Tobeatic Research Institute, and the Nova Scotia Woodland Owners and Operators association, and is funded by the Nova Scotia Department of Natural Resources.
Registration is required and the number of participants may be limited. For more information, or to reserve a place, contact the Federation of Nova Scotia Woodland Owners by calling Scott Maston at 1-844-966-3568 Ext.1 or email: Scott@fnswo.ca
