Annual Meeting- 2006
August 18 & 19, 2005
Photo Tour
The 2006 Annual Meeting on Friday and Saturday, August 18 and 19 in southern Menominee County had one thing in common with past Annual Meetings: it was another outstanding experience for all those who attended. It was held largely on the property of the Thoneys, last year's Regional Tree Farmers of the Year and Michigan Tree Farmers of the year the previous year. The meeting tours demonstrated 45 years of professional forest management of red pine plantations, northern hardwoods, swamp land, upland conifer and much more and was an opportunity to share experiences with other forest landowners. As always it was an opportunity to have fun with old friends and to make new friends. There is a good reason that people who have already attended an Annual Meeting keep returning each year.
