The Third Annual Forestry Field Day will be held at Bill and Jeanie Snoddy's Loblolly Farm in Double Springs on Friday, May 1st, 2009, at 8:30 a.m.
Loblolly Farm carries the special designation of Helene Mosley TREASURE Forest, which means that Bill and Jeanie have developed and managed the forest according to a long-range plan. They've focused on timber production, recreation, aesthetics, and wildlife. The development has allowed their family and friends to derive a great deal of enjoyment from the property over the years.
Highlights include a walking tour of the property and speakers on such topics as long-range planning, forest management, pond construction and management, native grass establishment, forest roads, invasive plant management, and horticulture. A detailed program is available by clicking here. Loggers will receive six Professional Logging Manager (PLM) points by attending the field day.
Pre-registration is required by April 24th. A registration form is available by clicking here. Lunch is included in the $20 registration fee. You may also request field day program information by calling us at (205) 489-5376 or stopping by the Winston County Extension Office in the Courthouse Annex.
