Henry Homeyer : Learning and Helping As We Travel
When I packed my bags to go to Maui recently I thought about packing my CobraHead weeder. But in the rush of getting ready I neglected to do so. I wish I had. That's right, I like to garden even when I go on vacation. There are always opportunities to help out, and to learn. A winter vacation in a warm place can offer more than just a tan and some relaxation.

A Walk in the Woods
As I walk and talk to private landowners in Grafton County, it never ceases to amaze me at how differently each landowner places value on the forest that they own. Of course all landowners love their land, but how they view the intrinsic and utilitarian value of their land changes constantly from owner to owner. What does remain the same are the top reasons why people own forest land. In general the top four reasons to own private forest land are recreation, aesthetics, wildlife enjoyment, and timber revenue and the order of those priorities is as I have it here. The priorities do change from person to person and there are more reasons of course, but on average this is the order of the top four priorities for private non-industrial landowners.
