Madsen's named Lewis County Tree Farmer of the Year

Sam and Sharon Madsen and their daughter and son-in-law Emily and Eric were named 2024 Lewis County Tree Farmers of the Year. 

A slide show with pictures and a chronology of their Coal Creek Tree Farm was presented at the February 21 meeting. To watch the video of it, click here.

Before he became a full-time tree farmer, Sam was a Stihl dealer in Centralia.  Stihl has just released an outstanding video featuring Sam and his Coal Creek Tree Farm.  It captures the essence of being a tree farmer.

The local newspaper The Chronicle also did an a good article on the award and their tree farm.

They will be hosting the Lewis County Farm Forestry Association picnic and offering a tour of the property on July 16, 2024.
