Shiver River Tour
Join 2019 BSWA Outstanding Tree Farmers of the Year, Diana Blakney and Sid Picht, for a visit to beautiful Shiver River at the base of Marys Peak. Shane Hetzler, Trout Mountain Forestry and logger Shane Russell, of ShaneCo Timber Inc. will lead the tour of the 60 acre commercial thinning completed in mid-October. Along the one mile moderate loop hike on a logging road, we will learn how the trees were selected, how the markets were chosen, and the various challenges faced. Trout Mountain and its predecessors have helped manage Shiver River’s 140 acres of timber sustainably for nearly 50 years. This is a great opportunity to bring a friend or neighbor and talk about trees!
