[FULL] YEAGER DEMONSTRATION FOREST: We will visit a 750 acre tract that is being managed by Champion International Foresters with consideration for beauty and wildlife habitat. Some parcels have been managed for intensive pine culture and others are being tested for hardwood regeneration following various harvesting methods. Road building to minimize erosion involves gabion baskets & drainage structures.
[FULL] CHAMPION INTERNATIONAL PAPER MILL: We will visit Champions Courtland Mill which was once the largest white paper mill in the world. We will also visit a private woodland for a brief forest management discussion.
