 RE:  MSAF FALL CONFERENCE
 
 Obstacles Impacting the Forestry Profession


10-11 October (Thursday & Friday)

SAVE THE DATE!!

Each year, the practice of forestry changes and becomes more complicated.  Just when you think you have it figured out, the rules change.  The Michigan Society of American Foresters (SAF) conference will be held at the Quality Inn and Conference Center located in Escanaba.  We will have a slate of guest speakers focusing on issues that make practicing forestry challenging.  The next morning, we will have a variety of local mill/woods tours.  Watch your inbox for the meeting details and a registration packet!

Thanks,

RE:  MISAF SPRING CONFERENCE

16-17 April

Grayling, Kirtland Community College

$80 full registration

Registration is now open for the Michigan SAF meeting in Grayling on April 16-17, 2020.  This meeting should be a lot of fun with 175-200 foresters and friends coming together for networking, getting better at our profession and enhancing our service to society. 

Here is Mike Smalligans first top ten list of reasons why you should come.

1.     Diverse lineup of informative speakers covering forest health and management responses

2.     Kirtland Community College on 4 Mile Road is a great facility for a meeting

3.     Student research poster contest with free registration for participating students and a $100 cash prize for the best poster

4.     Advocate for forestry issues with invited policy makers.  Contact Larry Leefers at leefers@msu.edu if you are interested in policy issues.

5.     Half barrels of Bells Two Hearted and Founders Solid Gold at Happy Hour (forests provide clean water which makes great Michigan beer)

6.     Sponsors can contribute in-kind donations of valuable items for the Thursday evening raffle (so bring extra cash to support MI SAF)

7.     YOU can donate your favorite venison products (jerky, summer sausage, meat sticks, etc) for SAFs first ever MEAT RAFFLE.  Seriously, its a real thing www.npr.org/2019/11/22/781649415/meat-raffles-arent-just-about-the-meat-in-this-new-york-community and we need to do our part as foresters by eating more herbivores.

8.     Three interesting and very different tours to choose from on Friday morning forest health near Hartwick Pines, DNRs new timber cruise by Waters, or mill tours on 4 Mile Road

9.     Earn 3 to 9 CFEs if you need credits for the Registered Forester, Certified Forester, or SFI programs

10. Brenda Haskill and Tara Bal are hosting a Women in Natural Resources gathering on Thursday 16 April from 7:30 to 8:30 am at Coffee by Steph at 223 E Michigan Ave in Grayling.  Women from all areas of natural resources are welcome to gather for free coffee or tea and valuable conversation.  Please RSVP to Brenda Haskill at haskillb@michigan.gov or text/call 989-370-9557.

Please return the attached fillable pdf registration form to me if you are paying by check in the mail or if you are paying online with a credit card at https://squareup.com/store/society-of-american-foresters/ 

Please forward this invitation to your colleagues and those whose emails have changed in the last 4 years.  Everyone is welcome at SAF meetings, not just foresters or current members. 

We look forward to seeing you in Grayling!

Thanks,

Mike

Hey all:

Please join us for a forest pest and disease information session!

Date and Location:
Monday, March 9th, 2020

 This 2-hour presentation, given by the Manistee and Mason-Lake Conservation Districts, Forestry Assistance Program (FAP), and Michigan Department of Natural Resources (DNR), is designed for landowners AND professionals such as foresters, ecologists, and loggers, interested in pests and diseases that are relevant to the forests of Northwestern Lower Peninsula Michigan.  Both native and non-native invasive pests and diseases will be discussed by Josh Shields, FAP Forester with the Manistee and Mason-Lake Conservation Districts, and Cheryl Nelson, Michigan DNR Forester with the Forest Health Response Team.  Josh Shields and Cheryl Nelson will also discuss the importance of combatting non-native invasive organisms.  They will also explain the importance of understanding how non-native invasive organisms are different than ecologically important native organisms that are often labelled as aggressive pests or diseases.  This is a great presentation to attend to stay informed about the organisms impacting your forests!  

The following types of organisms will be discussed:
 
  Non-native invasive insects such as Asian longhorned beetle, beech scale, emerald ash borer, gypsy moth, hemlock woolly adelgid, and spotted lanternfly
  Non-native invasive fungi such as oak wilt
  Non-native invasive plants such as autumn olive and garlic mustard
  Native pests and diseases such as eastern tent caterpillar, forest tent caterpillar, Heterobasidion root disease, lecanium scale, oak decline, red pine pocket decline, spruce decline, and white-tailed deer
 
 This event has been approved for 2 Category 1 Society of American Foresters continuing education credits and Michigan Agriculture Environmental Assurance Program (MAEAP) Phase 1 education credit.
 
 There is no cost for attending this event.  Snacks will be provided free of charge.  A suggested minimum donation of $10/person is requested at the door to help offset costs of the event.

RE:  LOGGING CONGRESS CANCELLATION
2020 Great Lakes Logging & Heavy Equipment Expo Cancelled
 
The Great Lakes Timber Professionals Association has made the decision to cancel the Great Lakes Logging & Heavy Equipment Expo on 10-12 September 2020.  This decision did not come easy but for the safety of our attendees, exhibitors, and the residents of Delta County it is for the best.
 
If you are an exhibitor and have already submitted payment for your booth(s) we will be returning that to you within the next week.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Jennie Baker.
 
We will see everyone next year for the 75th Anniversary Great Lakes Logging & Heavy Equipment Expo!

The Fall Schedule of New York Logger training is posted now. Of note is that there is one virtual class in Silviculture for those who can't make the drive. A little short on the GOL classes this time around, but they have some other new classes on contracts and other things of interest and value for the logging community.
The Current listing can be found HERE.
Oscar 328 Band Mill, Husky 450, 372 (Clone), Mule 3010, and too many hand tools. :) Retired and trying to make a living to stay that way. NYLT Certified.
OK, maybe I am the woodcutter now.
I can work with wood, but I am NOT a Woodworker, yet.
