Mile High Tree Farm Workshop

The Mile High Tree Farm Workshop held on April 10 was a huge success. Mike Eckhoff, a PhD candidate from CSU gave a very informative and entertaining talk on wood markets with lots of new scientific data as well as anecdotal information. An obviously well informed audience added challenging questions and shared real life experiences which all resulted in a lively discussion that benefited everyone. A pot luck lunch was provided and shared by all present. Lots of forestry related equipment was demonstrated. Everyone came away with new insights and helpful contacts. Great job Mile High!

We got the whole presentation on video for those of you who couldn't make it to the meeting. Because of the length. we had to divide it into segments. We'll be adding them to our web site over the next few days. However, you can see the first two segments right now. see videos
