Matt Tarr, Extension Wildlife Specialist, invites you to see a new forestry mulcher in action on October 11 from 1 to 3:30 at the Les Clark Nature Trailhead on Portsmouth St. in Concord.

Asplundh will demonstrate the Rayco Forestry Mulcher that provides habitat managers with another method for creating and maintaining young forest and early successional wildlife habitat. This mower fits a niche between a brush hog and larger forestry mowers and has the added capacity of grinding stumps and scarifying soil.

The demonstration area is in the floodplain managed by SPNHF. Highlights include a previously cleared shrub-sapling-dominated area and the mower in action mowing a combination of trees, saplings, shrubs and grasses, and to prepare a seedbed that will be planted to wildflowers and grasses.
