Tree Farm Field Day

DURHAM — UNH Cooperative Extension and the UNH College of Life Sciences and Agriculture invites the public to a Community Tree Farm Field Day on Sat., June 1, from 9:00 a.m. – 3:45 p.m., in the UNH woodlands in Durham. The field day will feature long and short tours, demonstrations, lectures, and lunch.

Experts from UNH, UNH Cooperative Extension, and the New Hampshire Division of Forests and Lands will guide participants through the inner workings of several field sites, including a three-acre insectary where beetles that feed on the invasive hemlock woolly adelgid will be raised as a biological control; a New England cottontail habitat tract; a woodlot that supplies bedding for UNH Organic Dairy cows; a timber harvest area where researchers are testing controls for invasive buckthorn, and the renowned College Woods—a 250-acre parcel and popular recreation area with more than 10 miles of recreational trails, some of which are universally accessible.

Field day begins at 9:00 a.m. At 10:00 a.m., participants will have the option of joining a long tour to the insectary and cottontail habitat sites or short tours to the bedding woodlot and buckthorn sites. After lunch at UNH Holloway Commons, participants will take a guided tour through College Woods.

The 3,800-acre UNH woodlands comprise multiple parcels, with about half of the total acreage in Durham and about half in Carroll County. They serve as teaching grounds, research grounds, and recreation areas. In 2012, the New Hampshire Tree Farm Committee recognized UNH woodlands as the Outstanding Community Tree Farm of the year for its exemplary management and stewardship.

The $18.00 registration fee includes lunch at UNH Holloway Commons. Register online at http://bit.ly/13YNvGl. For more information, visit http://bit.ly/15MxXJY.
