Great Honor for My Wife

Back in the fall at the Alabama Natural Resource and Forestry Awards Banquet my wife Felicia received the top award one can receive from the State Tree Farm Committee.  The award is named for a great Tree Farm Person, Doug Link.  When we first got started on the State Committee Mr. Link was a great encourager and visited our property more than once. 
To receive this award was a great honor for her and me too!
She definitely was well deserving of this award.  She has spoken at the National Leadership Conference about encouraging more women to get involved in forestry through "Women's Walk in the Forest".  She always helps with "Classroom in The Forest" for fifth graders on our property.  Planting trees, cutting wood, prescribed burning and other management practices are some of her forestry experiences.
So glad I get to share live with her!


Prescribed Fire


My wife and I did a prescribed burn on 40 acres of longleaf pines.  We got a great burn and this made these ten year old trees happy!

These five year old longleaf pines to the right will be burned later this week.
