Post subject:  Timber Harvest on Marlboro Trail, Mount Monadnock, Nov 2016

The Forest Society will be conducting a timber harvest on the western side of the lower slopes of Mount Monadnock starting November 22nd. Hikers visiting the Marlboro Trail will notice the creation of a log landing off Shaker Farm Road, and trail signage where forestry skid trails intersect with hiking trails. Please use caution when hiking on this trail, especially at these intersections. This harvest will result in some improvement to Shaker Farm Road, which was previously difficult to drive for certain vehicles.

A licensed consulting forester will be administering this harvest in accordance with a carefully prepared forest management plan. The Forest Society leases the recreational aspects of Monadnock to the State of New Hampshire, which manages it as Monadnock State Park. The Forest Society will be working closely with the consulting forester and State Park personnel to ensure the harvest is conducted in a safe and professional manner.

For more information about this harvest, see our blog post at: https://www.forestsociety.org/blog-post/forestry-goals-2016-2017-mt-monadnock-timber-harvest
Please feel free to contact me at the Forest Society with any questions or concerns.
