Forestry Workshop Pictures posted

BGWA Board Members Kevin Predon and Scott McGregor put together a great event this past Saturday, helping members understand the basics of conifer plantation management, including analysis of density and ways to estimate tree height. Pictures (thanks, Larry Cluchey, for supplying taking photos and supplying captions) have been posted in the event gallery.
