Northeast Timber Growing Contest

improving productivity & health of woodlands

Information & Rules

Background
The Northeast Timber Contest grew from a recognition that many forest owners take pride and see value in growing the best quality trees possible on their property. As described below, the contest provides a friendly opportunity to encourage, reward, and recognize these owners. Growing nice timber is one component of restoring New York’s woodlands (or the state of the contestant) because it reflects success in controlling deer impacts, reducing interfering vegetation, and practicing good silviculture.
