2010 OUTSTANDING TREE FARMER OF THE YEAR

In 2010, The New Hampshire Tree Farm Committee selected Dave and Marcia Parody, of Keene, as the state's "Outstanding Tree Farmer's of the Year".

Dave and Marcia have worked continuously with their woodlands since they originally purchased their property in 1970. Under the Parody’s care, once overgrown pasture lands and neglected woodlands have been nurtured to produce a diverse forest mix of species and age classes for multiple uses including timber production and wildlife habitat. An extensive network of woods roads have been meticulously constructed and maintained providing access for passive recreational uses as well as harvesting activities. Dave and Marcia involve their family and friends in the operation of their Monadnock View Christmas Tree Farm where they have planted over 5,000 Christmas tree seedlings. They have also created a nature trail throughout their forest that is used by their Christmas tree customers as well as local grade school children. The Parody Tree Farm exemplifies the principles of sustainable forest management and managing forests for multiple benefits of wood, water, wildlife and recreation that are the foundation of the NH Tree Farm Program.

As New Hampshire's Tree Farmer's of the Year, Dave and Marcia hosted over 130 attendees at the annual Field Day at their Monadnock View Tree Farm in Keene on Saturday, September 18, 2010. Events for the day included tours of the Parody’s Tree Farm, educational programs, a pig roast/chicken barbeque, and award presentation. Thank you to our sponsor's and for those who donated an item to our raffle/silent auction; we appreciate your support!
