January 14, 2010

Join the Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests on a timber harvest tour at The Hay Forest Reservation in Newbury, New Hampshire on Saturday, January 30 from 10 am to 2 pm.

During this hike through an active forest management operation, visitors will get the latest news about logging practices, equipment, wood products, and the timber markets where products are shipped and sold. Care is taken to protect wildlife habitats, water quality, cultural and historical resources, recreational trails and aesthetics.

The care and responsible management of these forest reservations contributes to the local, statewide, and regional forest products economy, providing good jobs and economic revenue ripple effects across the entire region. The forest products industry in New Hampshire provides $2.3 billion in annual revenues and employs nearly 10,000 workers in logging, trucking, sawmills, and pulp and paper industries.
