This is the 20th year woodland owner and WWOA member, Nancy Livingston has hosted an Arbor Day tree planting event on her Tree Farm in the spring with help from the Adams – Friendship school district 4th grade students. It started with the help of Nancy’s good friend, Peggy Werner (who happened to be a 4th grade teacher) and DNR forester Nina Stensberg. The first group of 4th graders came out to the tree farm to learn about forestry in the forest, Wisconsin logging history, and of course each student helped plant a tree. Through the hard work and efforts of many, including DNR forestry staff, fellow woodland owners , and friends of Nancy’s, this tradition has survived for 20 years! Nancy would like nothing more than for each student to take away the importance of a working forest and how they can make a difference just by planting a tree.  Nancy is a proud member of the Wisconsin Woodland Owners Association and the American Tree Farm System which helped co-sponsor the event.
