Summer Woodland Tour and Lunch

Columbia County Small Woodlands Association/OSU Extension Service

Saturday, July 26, 2014 8:30 AM - 2:30 PM

Our hosts for this year's tour are Randy and Bonnie Holce, CCSWA members and OSU Master Woodland Managers.

8:30 Hot Coffee and Pastries
9:00 Walking Tour Begins

Randy is the second generation in his family to own this property.  Originally managed as pasture and other farm uses, the farm was converted to timber over the years and now consists of various stands from recently planted to mature.  We will see many highlights of the Holce's current activities on the tour.

Rob Hahmeyer, pole buyer with McCormick Pole Yard, will be on hand to do a pole marking demonstration so we can learn to distinguish trees that might have potential for the lucrative market.  We will also look at a commercial thinning in progress and see how a less productive area has been enhanced as a wildlife set-aside.

Remember, family is invited.  Please include the number in your party when you RSVP to Debra Boot at 503-568-4929 or globe.trotters.email@gmail.com by July 18th.  RSVP is needed for accurate food preparation, please!
