On June 22nd from 8:30am until 11:30, Keith Griebel and Brian Steines of Steines and Griebel Logging will be delivering a presentation on the felling and skidding of trees from your timber from the loggers' perspective. Steines and Griebel represent over fifty years experience in the logging industry.  This is a unique opportunity to meet and discuss with loggers what to anticipate during the harvesting of your trees. 

They will cover such subjects as:

  • Tree selection and quality.
  • Harvest contracts and the bidding process.
  • Minimizing damage to trees during the harvest.
  • Proper trail selection.
  • Crossing waterways with equipment.
This presentation will be held at Larry and Sally Priske's tree farm near Galena.  The Priske's established their initial tree plan in 1984 and are long-time members of the Illinois Forestry Association.

Please register for this event so that we can anticipate attendance and inform you of any last minute changes to the schedule.
