OWW, National Tree Farmer Finalist
« on: July 03, 2009, 09:03:16 AM »
Ain't nothing like having one of our outstanding members be selected as a finalist (one of four regional winners) for the National Outstanding Treefarmer of the Year Award.  Robert is doing an outstanding job  managing his timber,and is also doing a tremendous job using his land to educate other Hoosiers.  I have had the pleasure of touring his land and the work he has done is quite impressive.

A great big congratulations, Robert.  Good luck in Washington DC at the end of September.

This is BIG.

This is BIG.

Yer DanG right it's big!

On Highway 84, east of Bainbridge, Ga, there is a big sign in front of a beautiful pine forest, announcing that the owner was Georgia Treefarmer of the Year in 1998.  I admire his forest and his status every time I pass there.  OWW, your accomplishment makes his pale in comparison!  Congratulations, and I'll be pulling for you in September! 8) 8) 8)

This goes to show it is quality of work more than quantity of acres.
Robert and his wife, Linnea, own 100 acres and 95 of them are forested.
First 20 bought in 1980 and the rest in 1989 and 2002.
Robert is representing the North Central region composed of 10 states. He will compete against tree farmers from the Northeast, South and West.
Being one of the 4 best out of 90,000 tree farm members is impressive.
To win the award you must demonstrate outstanding environmental stewardship and sustainable management of wood, water, wildlife and recreation on private woodlands.
He had to fill out a 35 page application.  The above comes from Farm World July 1 2009.

You should see his big toothy grin in the Farm World magazine.  He looks like he just ate a 'possum.
