Photo Tour
The MFA Annual Meeting took place at Tustin, Michigan, near Cadillac with the banquet and meetings at the Kettunen Center. Highlights of the meeting included a tour of the Pine Tech Sawmill near Lake City which specializes in sawing Red Pine. A tour of Pete Buehler's woods was followed by a meal cooked outdoors by Pete himself. At Buehler's Woods, members also enjoyed an informative program on Edible and Medicinal Plants in Northern Hardwoods by Chris Bernard. Saturday, the Cadillac Forest Service provided a program on Black Bear in Michigan which was followed by a walking tour through Mitchell Swamp (also called Bear Swamp). Members were then taken on a tour of a timber sale conducted by Pete Buehler showing how a selective cut of maple and beech yielded the landowner a substantial return and left the woods in better shape. Bill Botti acted as able auctioneer at the annual banquet and auction Saturday night. Here are some photos of the meeting and the tours:
