The workshop emphasizes three areas: safety, silviculture, and 
technique. Participants at this workshop will learn how to inspect 
equipment and tools, utilize safe practices, understand basic 
silvicultural principles, and make appropriate tree selection choices 
for multiple ownership objectives. Also, participants will observe 
directional felling using a felling plan and observe the use of an 
ATV and arch for moving sawlogs and firewood. The course is designed 
for novice to intermediate woodland owners and anyone interested in 
learning about and discussing sustainable woodland 
practices.  Participants should dress for the weather and be prepared 
for walking on moderately rough ground. Hard hats are encouraged.

Program and the NY Forest Owners Association Southern Finger Lakes Chapter.
