The Department of Conservation & Recreation will hold a Forest Cutting Practices workshop for licensed timber harvesters at the Swift River Sportsmens Club in Belchertown on June 12th from 1 to 4 p.m.

The workshop will include a review of the use of BMPs in harvesting, as well as an update on Forest Health and on Emerald Ash Borers and Asian long-horned Beetles.

This workshop will meet the requirement that harvesters must take a 3-hour refresher on Massachusetts forestry laws and regulations at least once every 3 years.

 

For information about the workshop or to register, call Doug Hutcheson at (413) 545-7020 by June 5th.
