Its official, as of August first, the Grey County Woodlot Association no longer exists. We are now the Bruce Grey Woodlot Association. Following from resolutions at both associations’ AGMs, the boards have been hard at work on this and, on July 28th, 2014 met in Sulfur springs to finalize the details of the amalgamation. A temporary board has been set up that will govern the organization until such time as we can have elections. Thank you for your patience during this process as it does take a lot of time and effort for changes to occur. The new amalgamated association will allow us to operate more efficiently and combine our efforts better to provide tours, events, etc, for members. The revised and approved Constitution will be posted on this web site shortly. In the meantime, I look forward to seeing you all at the fall BBQ where we can meet and welcome the new members. ~Lee Thurston.

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
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.
Just a reminder of the woodlot tour this Saturday, May 10th. For details, directions map, and online registration, see news post below. Woodlot tours are a great way to meet members and to get ideas for managing and developing your own woodlot, and this property sounds like it will be particularly interesting. Continue reading
