8:30 AM to 10:00 AM        Managing the Small Woodlot        Speaker: Skip Mourglia
 
Managing the Small Woodlot: Tending a woodlot is both science and art.  Much like gardening, a forest owner decides what should be grown, tended, and receive the highest priorities.  Knowing when to act and exactly what to do is the valuable information woodlot owners must have before forest work begins. Skip will share her years of forest tending experience, both as a Tree Farmer and as a professional forester working with private forest owners.  Come prepared to learn a lot!

 
Skip Easter lives in Monett, Mo and tends her Tree Farm in Southwest Missouri in her spare time.  She works as a forester for the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service, providing forest and wildlife management expertise to private, rural landowners in southwest Missouri.  She is a contributor to Sawmill & Woodlot Magazine and a member of the Great Portable Sawmill Shoot-Out team.
