7/5/12 - 11:16 am

Historically, land in our region was cleared for farming practices. Today, our region is dominated by forests since many or our farms have been abandoned. Our forests provide us with incredible benefits that are often overlooked or taken for granted. Some of these benefits include:
Source of Timber
Maple Syrup & Sugar
Wood products, paper, & fuel-wood
Most of these products are provided by Forest Landowners that society has and will depend upon for its resources.
The Catskill Forest Festival celebrates all of our forest’s benefits! The 4rd Annual Catskill Forest Festival will be scheduled for Saturday, July 27th at the Pavilion in the Village of Margaretville, Delaware County, conveniently located on State Route 28 just 15 minutes west of Belleayre Ski Center. The purpose of the event is to foster an appreciation for the many benefits our Working Forests provide for our local communities and society.
At the festival there will be:
- Game of Logging competition
- Maple Producers
- Wood products
- Forestry equipment
- Firewood processor & sawmill
- Forest management education & services
- Recreation vendors
- Zip line across the Delaware River
- Arts & crafts made from the forests & more
