20th Annual New Hampshire Tree Farm Field Day

The NH Tree Farm Committee has selected Igor Blake as the 2009 NH Outstanding Tree Farmer. The award recognizes Igor’s long history of stewardship which recently included donating a conservation easement to UVLT. The field day is a celebration of Igor Blake’s stewardship and an educational event for people to learn about all aspects of managing and caring for forestland. The morning session will include several tours of Mr. Blake’s property, as well as other educational activities. Lunch is a chicken barbeque and pig roast with an award presentation, raffle and silent auction. The event will take place rain or shine on Saturday, September 19th, 9am – 3pm at the Blake Family Tree Farm, 456 Oak Street, Newport, NH.
