On Sunday 3/17, Chittenden County Forester Ethan Tapper will lead a public walk of active forest management on the Hinesburg Town Forest (HTF). This timber sale is being cut by Hinesburg logger Tim Brown, and is also supervised and marked by Ethan. This operation will be continuing through next winter. Similar to the PPCA, the work at the HTF is designed to improve forest health, encourage high-quality, healthy trees, provide improved habitat for wildlife and generally to encourage a more complex, diverse forest while demonstrating responsible active forest management in an open, transparent and inclusive way.
For this walk, please meet at the end of Economou Road in Huntington at 1:00 PM, where we will park in the plow turn-around. The walk will go from 1:00 – 3:00 PM.
