Low Impact Forestry Workshops

2014 dates TBD

MOFGA’s Common Ground Education Center

If you own a small woodlot and don’t know where to start in the management of your woods, come meet with our consulting foresters and see how they have worked to improve the MOFGA woodlot. If you do not own a horse or steer but would like the chance to work with one, here is a unique opportunity to work with some of the best in New England.

You will have the opportunity to have experienced teamsters watch you work and assist you in problem-solving your technique, your gear and your relationship with your horse. If you have ever wanted to work with a modern, portable sawmill, this is your chance. The workshop will include instruction and practice on topics including how to fit harnesses and collars, basic driving skills and safety, how to build a woods scoot, twitching with a single horse, driving a team with a scoot, principles of Low-Impact Forestry, tree identification and properties and more.


 Please contact Grace Oedel, Education Events Coordinator, with any questions.
