Timber Harvest at Pisgah
August 10, 2022
Operation of the timber sale east of Old Chesterfield Road which was delayed due to last summer’s rains, will begin on the week of August 15th.
Road repairs to Winchester Road and Old Chesterfield Road (from Winchester Road to the just north of the Lily Pond Trail at the new Habitat Trail southern spur) will happen first. Access will be limited on portions of the trail - watch for signs and updates here.
During harvest many of the old culverts and bridges will be covered with “crane or timber mats” to protect them during trucking and forwarding. These wooden mats are similar to wooden bridges so equestrians should be aware of possible traction issues.
Once harvesting begins, there will be occasional weekday trail closures (watch here for updates) and trucks on Winchester and Old Chesterfield Rd during weekdays.
For more information on this this project and timber harvesting in State Parks and State Forests, contact Project Forester, Inge Seaboyer at 603-464-3453 or Regional Forester, Scott Rolfe 603-2278741.
We have a fantastic fund-raising opportunity, but, we need your help!
Wonder casino in Keene is going all in by donating a portion of their proceeds to our organization November 17-21. We need you to rally some friends and make a night of it on those dates. The more attendees, the more financial support Friends of Pisgah will receive.
This program is an invaluable revenue stream for us and we're asking you to help us make the most of it. We love maintaining and celebrating this beautiful park and we know you value our work- roll the dice and come out for FOP at Wonder Casino in Keene Nov 17-21!
