The New Hampshire Tree Farm Program is proud to honor Ned and Jean Therrien as the 2013 New Hampshire "Outstanding Tree Farmer's of the Year"!

The Therrien’s own 118 acres of forestland in Canterbury, NH - the Ames Road Forest, which they have owned for 33 years. Over the years, the Ames Road Forest has been managed carefully and thoughtfully with meticulous records showing management and educational activities.

Ned has a forestry degree and developed his own stewardship plan for the property. The plan is updated yearly and reflects his interests in multiple use management - timber, wildlife, recreation, protecting water resources, soil, and historical features. The Therrien's are committed to keeping the Ames Road Forest free from development.

There have been four sustainably harvests on the property since it was acquired - close to 400,000 board feet of saw timber and 1,200 cords of low grade material has been removed. He inventories the property every 10 years on 58 permanent plots that are established. 100 species of birds have been identified on the property including 27 nesting species. Since 1980, Ned and Jean have raised 252 ducklings (Wood Ducks and Hooded Mergansers) in duck boxes.

As New Hampshire's Tree Farmer's of the Year, Ned and Jean hosted over 125 at the annual Field Day this autumn at their Tree Farm in Canterbury. Events for the day included tours of the Tree Farm, educational programs, a pig roast/chicken barbecue, and many other activities to educate and entertain children and adults alike.
