Self Guided Auto Tour Maki LCC Tree Farm (Peggy Meseroll)
Saturday October 5, 2019
In 2015, Bell Timber bought the Maki timber sale, which was harvested by No Sweat Logging. You will be able to see the effects of a post, 4 year, cut-to-length harvesting operation. The Makis’ thinned their pine stands to enhance the health and growth of the pine. The pine wood products included pulpwood, sawbolts/logs and telephone poles. They also cut some of the aspen to further enhance wildlife habitat for early successional wildlife species. This harvest not only provided income from various timber products but enhanced forest health and wildlife habitat as well.
