The Nova Scotia Woodlot Owners and Operators Association will host a woodlot tour and field day from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. July 21, at P and F Verstraten Farms, 5736 Highway 336, Lorneville, N.S.
The Verstraten family has been involved in multi-age, multi-species forest management for many years. Guided tours of the woodlot will show what the forest looked like initially, and highlight the family’s goals for the future.
The tour is part of the annual Tractor and Engine Show sponsored by the North Shore Antique Tractor and Engine Club. Tractors, engines, and antique farm machinery will be on display. There will also be wagon rides, a 4-H woodsmen competition, a horseshoeing demonstration, antique tool displays, and much more. Admission is free. Dinner is available on the grounds.
