UAF campus forest tour offered

Cooperative Extension Service forester Glen Holt will offer a forest management walking tour Saturday, Nov. 1, at the University of Alaska Fairbanks.

Glen Holt
Participants will meet at 1 p.m. at the Taku Parking Lot recycle bins, off Farmers Loop, for a 1.5-hour tour through the nearby forest. Holt said the tour will help private landowners learn how to manage the trees on their property, mitigate hazards, provide sustainable firewood and determine general forest health. Participants will learn which trees to cut for firewood and which to save and why.

Call Carmen Kloepfer at 907-474-5854 to register for the tour by Oct. 31. Participants are advised to dress warmly.
