Hardwood Log Grading Scaling ***FULL***
Join UNH Cooperative Extension’s Ray Berthiaume, Coos County Forester, and Wagner Forest Management’s Scott Rineer, Regional Manager, for an afternoon identifying hardwood log species, observing the variety of log grades and the defects that affect those grades. We’ll also discuss the different markets available for the species and grades of hardwood saw logs that are produced in the North Country.
