Trees harvested in the Northeast Kingdom are often trucked out of state and never seen again. Is there another way to do it? Yes! During this day of field demonstrations, we’ll show small- scale, low-impact ways to turn trees into lumber right on your own land. Featuring Wood-Mizer portable bandsaw demonstrations by Martin Sawmilling of Sheffield and tractor logging tricks for minimizing residual stand damage.
