Are you a current or aspiring woodland owner? Do you have a farm tractor that you are thinking about using in the woods? While tractors have their limitations, when equipped properly tractors can play an important role in working in your woodlot. Come to this “in action” workshop to find out about ways you can safely and productively use a farm tractor as a tool in forestry. This workshop will focus on tractor applications, matching tractor size with specific tasks, safety features and practices, attachments, and basic winching and log skidding techniques. Meet other woodland owners and share your experiences while learning from demonstrations and discussions led by a group of experienced instructors.
Space: Limited to 20 participants, pre-registration required.
