howdt doors in Tiller

stewardship contracting will become a partnership mechanism for community cooperation in getting work done on the forests. there is a backlog of thinning that needs to be done in second growth forty year old stands. creative uses for small diameter wood that control transportation and labor costs require high value products to be extracted, or at a minimum a sequential use of resource to the highest valued outcome. a local electrical co-generation plant may be the viable last alternative, or a bio-mulch land additive. much room for innovation.

while up in the Tiller ranger district of the Umpqua National Forest, i had to pull out my digital camera and enjoy the scenery.
