Amy Ouellette will be hosting a Tree Harvesting Workshop on August 21, 2010 from 2-5pm.  The cost is $25.00 per person or $35.00 per couple.  The location is 660 Route 126, Barrington NH.

We will have Matt Brillon, Certified Arborist, of Lee Tree Company in York, ME, showing us Chain Saw Safety and Maintenance, and how to safely harvest wood from your home wood lot. If you have a few trees you'd like to take down, before the next storm does it for you, if you have an acre or two of standing trees that you'll like to responsibly harvest for the use of heating your home, or just want more information, we welcome you to join us and learn how to do this safely. Matt has been working professionally, taking down trees, for 7+ years and is excited to educate those interested how they can make the most of the standing wood on their property.

You are welcome to bring a chain saw, if you have one, and would like to have it during the demo, to familiarize yourself with what Matt explains. You will also have the opportunity to be involved in the actual cutting of trees, if you would like to try your hand at it, with the professional there to guide you.

Boots are recommend, as the lot where we will be watching the demonstrations, and cutting trees, has various wet spots, and is heavily wooded. Bug spray, and long pants are a good suggestion, as well. Poison ivy and low lying brush could be in our path. We will be walking to different locations on the lot to view different situations to allow for the greatest understanding of how a tree stands and falls.

Sign up by calling Amy Ouellette at 603.664.5254 or via e-mail.
