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.
