On June 4th, we had a great tour of Dave Robbins' Alder Patch Tree Farm. Not only did we learn a lot about creating a tree farm out of a random bunch of alder, but what has worked and what didn’t. Questions were raised about all sorts of interests, including raising alder at sea level versus a higher elevation, and planning for wildlife enhancement. Some of us topped off the event with a gourmet lunch at Fat Smitty’s!
