North Puget Sound SAF Chapter Meeting and Pizza Night

November 29 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm PST

North Puget Sound SAF

Chapter Meeting – Pizza Night!

Wednesday, November 29, 6-8 PM

Burlington Public Library

In appreciation of our chapter members, dinner is on us!

Please join us for state and national SAF updates, chapter elections, and a presentation on Variable Density Thinning in the Finney Adaptive Management Area (1 hr Cat. 1 CFE approved).

Former USFS silviculturist Samantha Chang will discuss variable density thinning done in the Upper Finney Creek area of the Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest. The Northwest Forest Plan designates this area as Late-Successional Reserve with objectives for late-seral wildlife habitat, but also Adaptive Management Area which allows more flexibility in silvicultural treatments. Three approaches to variable density commercial thinning were applied to compare effectiveness at meeting silvicultural and economic objectives, and efficiency of timber sale layout and harvest operations. This presentation highlights the “focus tree” (a.k.a. “Chang Donut”) thinning prescription featured in the “Silviculture Alternatives for the Pacific NW” course, available on ForestEd through Dec. 31.

Join us from 6-8 PM on Nov. 29 in the meeting room at the Burlington Public Library, 820 E. Washington Ave., Burlington. Pizza and beverages will be provided.

Please RSVP with the button below so we can plan ahead for food, or email Samantha Chang at northpugetSAF@gmail.com. Guests are welcome – invite another forester!
