    • 09/12/2015
    • Near Decatur
    The annual field day/meeting of the Illinois Walnut Council will be held on September 12, 2015 starting at 10 AM.  The first stop will be at the Roger Briggs property which is located in the northeast corner of Macon County (Section 8, T18N; R4E).  Directions (most direct route): take US 51 north of Decatur to Lake Fork Road (County Line Road) about .5 mile north of Maroa, IL; go east about 10.7 miles to Briggs Road; head south on Briggs road for about 1.25 miles.  The Briggs’ Property is on the west side of the road.  There is a bottomland planting of walnut and mixed oak; and an upland planting of walnut, oaks, and ash.  We will discuss and demonstrate crop tree release, pruning, and soils.  Lunch will be catered by Mama D’s Smokehouse in Weldon, IL.  

     

    The afternoon will be spent at the Waynes James’ property near Mansfield, IL.  From Weldon, it is about 10 miles east and 4 miles north (2728 N 1000 E Road;  Section 18, T20N;R6E) in Piatt County    The James farmstead was established in 1872 and has been in the same family ever since.  The history includes osage orange hedge rows (originals are gone but a small example was planted in 2012); a mixed grove including oak, walnut, tulip poplar, and hickory all of various ages; a windbreak of Norway spruce planted in 1941; a ½ acre walnut plantation planted in 1995- grown for lumber and now need thinning.  A newer windbreak and a newer walnut patch may also be visited. The workshop will focus on pruning and thinning.  The workshop will end with a sawmill demonstration and a tour of a small woodshop allowing the owner to go from growing trees to manufacturing wooden objects.  For those interested in staying overnight, camping, a wiener roast and campfire will follow in the evening and a pancake breakfast the next morning.

     

    This is a good meeting for people with trees from 4- to 10-inches in diameter!

    • Ballard Nature Center - Altamont (Friday); Kreke Tree Farm South of Effingham (Saturday)
    Please join us for the 10th Annual Meeting of the Illinois Forestry Association, September 25th at the Ballard Nature Center, just east of Altamont.  It will be followed on Saturday by the 2015 Tree Farm Field Day, an annual event organized by the IL Tree Farm Committee. The field day will take place on Tony and Jill Kreke's Tree Farm a few miles south of Effingham.

    Those participating on Friday have a few different options to consider. Two concurrent Pre-Tours will be offered before the main event registration opens at 12:30 p.m. - or you can register for the afternoon/evening program only, to be held inside the Ballard Nature Center.

    Pre-Tour #1 begins at 9:30 a.m. at Heartland Hardwoods, located about 6 miles north of Effingham, near Sigel.  Heartland Hardwoods, Inc. is a family owned sawmill that offers it all: logging, mulch, green lumber, pallet lumber and assembled pallets, kiln dried lumber, custom interior millwork, and hardwood flooring. IFA member Craig Willenborg will be our host, and John Phelps - also on the afternoon program speaking about wood - will be our tour leader, participating in the discussion and getting everyone back to the Ballard Center in time for a boxed lunch at noon.

    Pre-Tour #2 begins at 10 a.m. in front of the Ballard Center.  This is a walking tour focused on Tree Identification as well as some of the prairie plants and wildflowers found in the area. Whether participating as a refresher, or learning for the first time, you will enjoy the good company and wisdom of Dan Schmoker, Carol Bryant, and other seasoned veterans who will help lead small groups on a mini adventure across the Center's grounds.  Participants will gather back at the Ballard Center for a boxed lunch, included in the All Day package.

    The Friday afternoon/evening session will feature four presentations related to this year's theme - Woods, Wildlife, and Wildflowers.  First up is Michael Reichenbach, a former Illinoisan, now Associate Extension Professor at the University of Minnestota.  Mike will share his experiences with large scale ecological restoration and how landowners with 1/4 acre to 500 acres are engaging with natural resource managers and each other to affect positive changes at the landscape level. Then Tom Micetich, IDNR's point man on whitetail deer in Illinois, will talk about deer population trends and how regulations are are used to strike a balance between herd maintenance, hunter success, and public safety.  Next we have John Phelps, retired SIU Dept. of Forestry Chair and all-around wood products expert, facing the ultimate challenge of covering basic wood identification and fun facts - in 45 minutes or less.  Finally, we have John Marlin, our "before-dinner" speaker, covering the very cool topic of woodland wildflower propagation. Imagine providing all of your child's college spending money, or better yet, getting them involved in raising that money through a family-friendly enterprise like growing and selling wild plants.  John has many years of experience to share that will help us better understand some of the interesting plants found on the forest floor.

    A short annual business meeting will follow dinner. Click here for an overview document that includes candidates for office and proposed bylaws changes.

    Those who wish to unwind with a little friendly social time are invited to join us after the business meeting in the lounge at the Knights of Columbus Hall, located across the street from the Comfort Suites on Fayette Ave. in Effingham. They have a new outdoor patio, and a band will be playing that night.

    Silent Auction

    The traditional silent auction will be held on Friday only this year. Several breaks are scheduled throughout the afternoon to allow time to view and bid on items. This is our biggest fundraiser of the year, so bid early and bid often!

    Perhaps you will consider donating an item for the Silent Auction. Handmade wood crafts, wildlife prints, gift baskets, and tools have all been popular with attendees in the past. Contact Stan Sipp in advance so he can prepare the bid sheet, then bring your item to the meeting. Cash donations are also welcome, and go to support our charitable mission. Send the name and/or short description of the item, name of the donor, and suggested minimum bid (if desired) to sksipp@illinois.edu.  Many thanks!

    Lodging

    A block of rooms has been reserved for Friday night at Comfort Suites, 1310 W. Fayette Rd., Effingham, IL 62401. Call 217/342-3151, Mon-Fri, between 7a and 3p, and request the IFA/Tree Farm group rate of $89, plus tax. Comfort Suites is located near Exit 159 off I-57/I-70.

    Attending the Illinois Arborist Association Fall Conference?  Join the Illinois Forestry Association for this special session focused on the restoration of oak forests on the urban-rural interface. Participants will hear from two leading experts who have conducted extensive research in forest and avian ecology.  Dr. Dan Dey is the Project Leader for Sustainable Management of Central Hardwood Ecosystems and Landscapes with the Forest Service. He will help explain why oaks are losing their dominance in central hardwood forests and how various management practices can make a difference.  Dr. Jeff Hoover is an Avian Ecologist with the Illinois Natural History Survey. His research has involved the impact of land management activities on bird populations. Learn how our understanding of oak-hickory forests has evolved, and what kind of management techniques can be used to reverse the trends we are seeing in forest composition, while providing optimal habitat for birds and other wildlife species. We’ll cap it off with a short talk about OAKtober – Illinois’ first ever Oak Awareness Month – the inspiration behind this new Illinois Arborist Association (IAA) Fall Conference session. 

    Check back for the link to IAA conference registration.

    1 p.m. Welcome and Overview – Stephanie Brown, Executive Director, Illinois Forestry Association

    1:10     The Decline of Oak Dominance in Illinois Forests: Why it’s happening and what we can do about it – Dr. Dan Dey, Project Leader/Research Forester, Sustainable Management of Central Hardwood Ecosystems and Landscapes, US Forest Service at Columbia, MO.

    2:00     Oak Restoration: Is it for the birds? – Dr. Jeff Hoover, Avian Ecologist, Illinois Natural History Survey

    2:45     Oak Awareness Month in Illinois: A long term vision!
