Barrett and Susan Brown TFOY Tour, Sept. 18, 9:00am – 1:00pm

RSVP Required

We will finally get our boots on the ground at the Snooseville tree farm of Barrett and Susan Brown.  They put together a great video last year, but being there in person makes it the real deal.

Here are the highlights:

An immediate post-thinning review:  Tom Nygren with White Oak Natural Resources will help us learn about a just finished NRCS cost share pre-commercial thinning project.  We’ll also see some longer-term results from PCT and commercial thinning.

Barrett will talk about various types of recreation trails and how much they can add to the list of rewards of small woodland ownership.  We’ll get to see the trail building machine he invented.

Bethany Lund from the Tualatin River Soil and Water Conservation District, and Samantha Sharka with the Tualatin River Watershed Council will speak on a big set of restoration projects that the Browns participated in.

We’ll also take quick look at their tree farm equipment and rock pit development.

The speakers will be available to tell us more and answer your questions!   Bring not only your questions, but stories of your successes and challenges so all of us can learn even more!

The event will start at 9:00 AM until 1:00 PM. Please RSVP to brownbsr@msn.com. The Brown’s property is located Northwest of North Plains, off of Dairy Creek Rd. For address and more detailed directions see Page 1 of the September 2021 Forest Forum. 

Given the seriousness of the latest Covid wave, along with mask and distancing protocols to keep everyone safe we have to forgo our traditional lunch offer.  You may bring your own refreshments if you wish.

Don’t forget to RSVP:  See you in a couple of weeks!
