Are there any workshops or classes for grading logs in New England?

Try to reach the Environment & Natural Resources Dept. From a search, the name Tom McEvoy came up as the Forest Resource Specialist, 802-656-2913 (UVM campus)  or Thomas.McEvoy@uvm.edu

also see University of Vermont

He, or his dept. should be able to give you some inside information as to what is happening. There use to be a fellow by the name of Jack Dwyer in Vermont that was real sharp in log grading, but know he is retired now. Might mention his name as one with good knowledge and appreciation for what log grades can do for you. Don't know if anyone followed in his footsteps there.

 I took a course thru the northeast logger. I don't remember the instructor's name but he is a veneer buyer from N.Y.
 We learned by marking tree length to be bucked for best grades. Then each log was inspected for grade and which face to open first, it was a learning experience.
