Tornado Storm Damage Information Meetings Offered

August 6, 2008

Cleanup continues from the July 24 tornado that tore through Northwood Lake and ended in Effingham, knocking down trees around homes and on woodlots.

To help communities, homeowners and woodlot owners assess their individual situations and work towards cleaning up the damage, UNH Cooperative Extension and the N.H. Division of Forests and Lands are hosting informational meetings.

The sessions take place Aug. 6 at the Epsom Fire Station, Aug. 7 at the Ossipee Town Hall and Aug. 12 at the George B. White Building, Deerfield. All meetings start at 6 p.m.

Topics to be covered include wood salvage and removal, shore land and wetland issues, safety and fire considerations, how to work with professional foresters and others, and the New Hampshire timber tax and timber harvesting laws.

Cooperative Extension and the N.H. Division of Forests and Lands staff will share their expertise. The meetings are free and open to the public.

For more information, contact the Cooperative Extension Forestry Information Center toll free at 1-800-444-8978.
