Ag Spotlight: A Walk in Penn’s Woods

All across Pennsylvania friends and family came together

 

by Melissa Bravo - November 6, 2017

On Sunday, October 1, all across Pennsylvania friends and family came together for a walk in Penn’s Woods.
Please join us as Melissa Bravo, host of Agricultural Spotlight; and her guest Forester Matt Sampson highlight the walk held at the Irion Lumber property located in Wellsboro in Tioga County.

As part of a statewide effort, “Walk in Penn’s Woods” aims to get people out to enjoy the outdoors, and to learn about how our forests work for us – from recreation and wildlife habitat to seeing the outcomes of timber harvests and learning about the history of lumbering in Pennsylvania.

Lou and Wanda Irion graciously offered to host this first annual event in Tioga County. Visitors took a short 1.5 walk through a 70-acre woodlot, along pastures and CREP fields. The walk ended at the Irion Lumber sawmill, production and warehousing facilities. An absolute gorgeous day in Tioga County was the setting for discussions about general forest management, timber quality, sawmilling, conservation easements, furniture making, wildlife management and a score of other landowner and consumer questions about sustainable use of our natural resources

For more information about hosting a walk like this on your property here in Tioga County next year please leave a message with Matt Sampson – Matt@forestlandgroup.com or call his office (570) 723-8742.

For more information regarding other walks across the state planned for next year, please contact Allyson Muth, Center for Private Forests at Penn State, 814-865-3208 or abm173@psu.edu.

All landowners and those interested in woodlot and forestry use, enjoyment, preservation, and production are invited to join the Tioga County Woodland Owners Association. To find out more about additional forestry events like this own consider attending the TCWOA planning meeting and dish to pass gathering on November 12th at 1:00 pm in Tioga, PA.
