The Northwest Illinois Forestry Association will be hosting a presentation on May 4 at the Larry and Sally Priske Tree Farm near Galena to address these and many other questions regarding tree harvesting. This session will be conducted by loggers from Steines & Griebel Logging of Bellevue Iowa, which has been in business for 37 years. This is a great opportunity for participants to gather information on logging from a logger's perspective.
The event will start at 9 a.m. and last approximately three hours. The location is 4700 N. Council Hill Road. If traveling from Highway US 20, turn onto Main Street towards downtown Galena. Main turns into Dewey Avenue which turns into Council Hill Road. Continue approximately two miles to the Priske Farm.
