Camp Deerpark Forestry

Spent the weekend before Hurricane Sandy up in the Catskills at Camp Deerpark running inventory transects to update the allowable cut calculations in the management plan (see Tree Marking and Elias Drops a White Pine). My crew did 48 plots, i.e. 9,600 square meters of inventory, and had a great two days shuffling through the autumn leaves counting and measuring trees.

Walked by what used to be an old field and saw that it had been turned into a log yard. That's the red Wood Miser portable sawmill in the background. Very proud  of how the Camp has taken to the sustainable forestry concept. Useful example of what a small, faith-based organization can do with 100 hectares of forest. Great job, guys.
