New member says Hello
« on: March 23, 2005, 11:22:58 AM »
Hello everyone,

Just wanted to introduce myself as a new member here. Have been reading FF for a couple of months and thought it was time to join the crowd.

I'm a forest landowner in Lancaster County Pennsylvania with 30 acres we live on and have owned since 1990.

My main interests are low-impact forestry management and trying to find the most productive means of managing the farm as a one-man operation.

I look forward to exchanging ideas and opinions with you all.

Joe

welcome aborad!
Maybe we'll chat at Silk City diner someday or pass one another at Shupps Grove or Renningers! I am out that way nearly every week during the summer.

You'll gather a lot of great information here and get to know some really nice guys and  gals.

Talk soon, Jim

Thanks to all for the warm welcome!

Ernie,

I'm one of the crazy ones that loves winter -- no bugs, no snakes, less sweat -- so the tree a constant reminder that winter is on the way. But I do like fall, so maybe a red one is worth consideration.

Welcome aboard.  This is a great place with good folks and a lot of knowledge.

I lived in Lancaster County during the 80's before moving home to Michigan.  I always enjoyed the country and people.  I imagine there have been many changes.  It is a beautiful part of the U.S.

Welcome to the Forestry Forum, Joe ;D

I'm glad someone else likes winter and I got all the same reasons plus being able to ride around on my land without disrupting the soil  ;)    Or getting hung up on the blow-downs and stumps ;D
