It was a typical April day in Mt. Adams country, with sun, wind, rain showers and even a little hail.  But that was not enough to deter a healthy group of foresters, landowners and contractors from descending upon the Mt. Adams Community Forest to discuss forest health issues and observe recent thinning activity. MARS partnered with Washington DNR and WSU Extension to provide the day long workshop that began with presentations on five-spined Ips, bark beetles, root diseases and silvicultural options for overstocked stands before heading to the field.  Thanks to the Glenwood Grange for providing a wonderful lunch and to those that came from near and far to learn and share their experiences managing for healthy forests!
