Event Description

Join host Brett Chedzoy, regional forester for Cornell Cooperative Extension, for a tour of the family Tree Farm and beef cattle operation.  Topics that will be viewed and discussed include: the benefits of sustainable woodlot management; value-added firewood and lumber operations; profitable forest plantations; strategies for the control of invasive plants; and silvopasturing – the sustainable production of quality timber and livestock on the same land.  The walk will take place rain or shine, and participants should expect to walk about 1 mile in forest conditions.  Sponsored by the Southern Finger Lakes Chapter of the NY Forest Owners Association (www.nyfoa.org), this event is free and open to the public – all are welcome.  For further information, please contact Brett at: bjc226@cornell.edu, or by phone: 607-742-3657.  RSVP’s are not required.
