Jo Daviess County: Tree Planting

  • July 14, 2018
  • 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM
  • East Bough Road, south of Woodbine

A farm tour south of Woodbine, where Kevin Ward recently planted over 22,000 trees, is open to the public on Saturday, July 14th, at 1 pm.  The tour is sponsored by the Northwest Illinois Forestry Association (NIFA); all are welcome.

Some large clearing equipment will be demonstrated including an excavator, a wheel loader, and a grapple all used for removing trees to burn piles as well as a modified 4wd caged utility tractor for mowing brush and trees up to 10 inches in diameter.  Also, consulting forester Kevin Oetken will discuss the issues and operation of the tree planting.

From Woodbine turn south on South Brown Road.  Drive 1 3/4 miles and turn left on East Bough Road. Travel 1/2 mile and look for the forestry sign; park along the road near the farm entrance.
