Nearly 600 families and individuals controlling over 27,000 acres of forestland in Washington and Idaho participated in a Forest Owners Field Day this summer in 2013. The field days were held in Okanogan, Whatcom, and Clallam counties over the summer, with a joint Washington-Idaho field day held near Moscow, ID.
- “Is my forest healthy and how do I know if it isn’t?”
- “When managing a timber sale, what’s my fair share?”
- “How do I attract certain wildlife and repel others?”
- “What are the benefits of having a Forest Stewardship Plan?”
A variety of topics ranging from thinning and pruning to sharpening a chainsaw were covered. Youth activities were available throughout the day. Field days in 2014 will include one June 21 in Spokane County, and another in early August in the Longview-Vancouver vicinity.
