Blue Hill Heritage Trust Workshop
October 22 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am
Join Blue Hill Heritage Trust and our forester, Sandy Walczyk, for another Caring for the Land workshop, “Backyard Forest Management,” on Oct. 22 from 9-11 a.m.
This program will introduce you to the trees in your own backyard, and give you some ideas for how you might learn about, manage and enjoy them. We will look at tree identification for some common Maine trees, practice measuring tree diameters and heights, and talk about forest ecology and development.
We will go over forest products and other ecosystem services, and talk about how and why people harvest wood and other forest resources. We will also talk about how wildlife use our forests, the basics of firewood harvesting and use, and whatever other questions you have about trees and forest management in your backyard or woodlot. Meet at Meadowbrook Forest on the Bucksport Road entrance.
