Small-Scale Logging

Covers small-scale strategies for working in your woodlot, including selecting, felling, and moving the wood safely and efficiently.

Woodlot owners often want to thin their trees, collect logs or firewood, and create desired woodland conditions. Often there are too few acres or too few trees for a commercial-scale operation, or the owner just wants more involvement in selecting, felling, and moving the wood. These tasks require special skills for safety and to achieve desired outcomes. Dr. Peter Smallidge, NYS Extension Forester at Cornell University, covers small-scale strategies for working in your woodlot. Participants will gain confidence and knowledge to initiate tasks, learn about small-scale logging, and increase their safety and efficiency.
