Tour of Dave's Alder Patch Tree Farm

Saturday, June 4, 2022 - 2:00pm

North of Quilicene

Olympic Chapter

Our own Dave Robbins (past Washington Tree Farmer of the Year), and retired boss of the family owned Hama Hama Tree Farm/Oyster business, has kindly offered our Olympic Chapter a tour of his north of Quilcene tree farm. Dave says the theme of his tour will be “mistakes” which he will enumerate to us so we all have a positive learning experience.
WHEN: June 4th, 2:00 – 4:00 pm
Directions from South Kitsap/Mason County: stay on 101 North, and 1 mile past where  104 merges, and at the top of a small rise, there will be a short guardrail on your right with a driveway on each side of it.
Take the 2nd driveway – there will be a WFFA Tree Farm tour sign there. That puts you at the Dew residence. (Another sign will be here.) Continue on the gravel road. It’s about a mile up a hill and do-able for small cars. Parking is at the top under powerlines.
Directions from North: Go about ½ mile past Fat Smitty’s (where Highway 20 takes off), and you’ll see the same two driveways on your left. Continue as per the second paragraph above.
Directions from the Hood Canal Bridge:  Same directions after 104 merges with 101.
