Ohio State University Extension’s Ohio Woodland Stewards Program will present “Selling Timber? Consider This …,” a workshop for landowners on sustainable logging, profitable marketing and practical tax matters, in northwest Ohio Nov. 30.
It’s from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at the Wyandot County Recycling Center, 11329 County Highway 4, in Carey. Registration costs $25, includes a packet of timber marketing materials and is due by Nov. 24.
“A well-planned harvesting operation will allow efficient removal of forest products and at the same time will protect water quality and help save money,” says the OSU Extension bulletin BMPs for Erosion Control for Logging Practices in Ohio, which will be given free ($7.50 value) to participants.
