“My Solar Chain Saw”

solar_saw_2013

Last summer, the solar saw easily felled this 10″ white pine.

It’s been all quiet here on the GCWA web site for the past few weeks (not coincidentally, tree planting season!) so, as the web guy, I thought I would take the liberty of writing an article on, yes seriously, my solar-powered chain saw. (Guest Articles by members are for general interest to woodlot owners in Grey County but do not necessarily reflect the views of the GCWA.) If you have something of interest to share with fellow members, feel free so send it to me and you too can be a guest web site author! Continue reading

Woodlot Tour pics posted.

The tour of Rick Wright’s property last Saturday was a great opportunity to learn new things, see varied property features, get ideas for managing your own woodlot, and chat with other members. If you missed it, I have created a slideshow of 15 pics provided by Larry Cluchey (thanks!), available to view in the members’ area.

Grey+Bruce Woodlot Assoc Amalgamation

At the Annual General Meeting of the GCWA in February, a motion was passed by members to proceed with steps required to amalgamate with the Bruce County Woodlot Association. Over the next few weeks and months, meetings will take place between the two organizations to hammer out the details. We have set up a GCWA-BCWA amalgamation web page to keep you informed and because we want your input. Your 2014 member password is required to access this page. The first meeting of the two Boards takes place April 15th so if you have ideas/suggestions please submit them online or contact any GCWA Board member.
