Brillant yellow larch set the tone for fall.

We've recently completed hand cutting and piling on 125 acres on the northern section of the property.  The piles will be burned in November or December and then seeded with Idaho fescue and blue wildrye.  We'll start mowing (using the Lightfoot) in late September or early October and then Darin Stringer and Amanda Egertson will lead a forestry tour to show folks the treatment areas on October 8th.
