RUTLAND, Vt. — Join VWA for a Woods Walk on Saturday, December 10, 2022. The walk will be hosted by Brad Johnson of Third Branch Horse Logging at his home property in Northfield, VT.
The Woods Walk will focus on the UVA (Current Use) program and how individual landowners and foresters can fully utilize the program to promote short- and long-term management goals to prep for the WMP update in April 2023. The late fall is a good time of year to walk the woods as snow cover is light and one can get a good overall sense of the management strategy necessary for their property.
Brad along with other team members from Third Branch Horse Logging will lead the walk. Brad is preparing for a plan update on his home property and participants will hear about the goals he is trying to achieve in on his property and how he is working with his forester to achieve them.
The event will be from 9:00 A.M. to 12:00 P.M. There is a $20 cost to attend, and the walk will be limited to 25 participants. Brad’s property is located at 652 Stony Brook Road, Northfield VT 05663. Please note that this is not the location of Third Branch Horse Logging, which is in Braintree. The event will take place rain, snow, or shine, so participants should dress accordingly with proper footwear for the uphill and potentially slick terrain. To reserve a spot, click here.
