Homestead Woodlot Management
Description:
Smart forest management can help you move towards energy independence while also providing additional income. This woodlot management workshop is meant to empower owners of small woodlots to start a management program of their own.


David Cantieni will share his personal experience of living in the woods for the last 30 years and his journey of forest stewardship. Hell discuss and demonstrate how to do a forest assessment, with emphasis on species diversity, canopy openness, aesthetics, wildlife habitat, and timber quality. David will dive into economic considerations of forest management including regional timber markets, selling cordwood, and more. There will also be discussion of scale-appropriate tools and technology to aid you in your forestry work.


This workshop also includes a hands-on demonstration of some tools of the trade: chainsaws, chokers, peavies, and more. Youll also get to watch David demonstrate how he bucks up his logs.

About the Instructor:

David Cantieni grew up in spending lots of time in the forests of rural Pennsylvania where he and his brother did all those things that country kids must do, such as cutting down a tree with an ax, making trails (secret if possible), finding dead animals, and getting lots of poison ivy. In college, his studies included agriculture and ecology. Ultimately, he and his partner found 40 acres of ex-pasture, now forest land, to build a house on. Hes been sustainably stewarding those woods ever since through lots of time being, observing, and reveling in the forest and all its aspects.
