Event Details

Join our Farm Manager, Brendan Murtha, and one of Land’s Sake’s founders, Brian Donahue as they lead a walk to discuss the Farm’s forestry program with a specific focus on our 2022 operations. They will give a broad overview of our plan and answer questions from participants. Folks should meet on Sunday January 23, 2022 at 2pm at the 49 Stonehedge Rd. trailhead and park along the right-hand side only. Participants should be prepared for a short walk in to the cutting site.

NO REGISTRATION REQUIRED. Simply meet us at 2pm on the 23rd! 

In effort to maintain the forests and keep them healthy, Land’s Sake – in partnership with the Weston Conservation Commission – selectively cuts firewood on Weston Conservation Land. This winter we’ll be focusing on sections of the Ogilvie Town Forest. Previous cutting areas include Case Estates, Highland Forest, Jericho Town Forest, and Sears Land.

Join us for a public walk-through of our work site and gain insight of our forest management philosophy and silvicultural practices, and learn about the results of our work over the past few decades.

The development of a healthy and diversified timber base, wildlife habitat improvement, and protection of our water and soil resources are our primary management objectives; the production and sale of firewood is a useful byproduct of this process and helps us fund our forest management initiatives. At the same time, we’re putting in every effort to ensure that the trails running through our work area as well as the forest itself maintain a high aesthetic and recreation value.
