Cost: free (Sponsored by Canaday Family Charitable Trust). Allen Yale’s 40+ years of forest stewardship were recently recognized when he was named as Northeast Regional Tree Farmer of the Year. In this tour, Allen and NorthWoods staff will show you what he has done to achieve this distinction, focusing on his use of “irregular forestry” (a European take on sustainable forestry, just now making its way to the US). An active forest worker himself, Allen will also show his tools-of-the-trade and discuss his ongoing management efforts
