Dale and Cathy received the award from the Wisconsin Tree Farm Committee last September. They are certified members of the American Tree Farm System in Wisconsin through their participation in the Wisconsin Managed Forest Law group certification program. This is the first time the awards has been given to a landowner in Bayfield County.
The Paulson's are true do-it-yourselfers with a strong connection to the land. They use their 131 acre tree farm to harvest saw logs and pulpwood, protect a trout stream, hunt, make maple syrup, keep bees, garden, and create works of art. Dale says of his land "I just want to leave it better than I found it, to leave it in good shape for the next person."
The event is coordinated by the University of Wisconsin-Extension on behalf of the Wisconsin Tree Farm Committee, in partnership with the Wisconsin Woodland Owners Association, the SFI - State Implementation Committee, Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, My Lake Superior Northwood, and Bayfield County Land and Water Conservation Department.
The field day event will run from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. and start from the Town of Bell Community Center in Cornucopia.
