Passing of Susan Stevens – Tree Farmer and Chainsaw Safety Trainer
Susan Stevens passed away March 21, 2019 and was laid to rest in Columbiana Memorial Park on March 25. Her husband, John Stevens, passed away in 2008. Her importance to the world of forest landowners can best be summed up by this recent quote from consulting forester, Jim Elze.    “It is with a heavy heart that we pass on the sad news of the passing of one of Ohio's greatest Tree Farmers. Susan was a mentor and friend to so many of us. Where would we be without the chainsaw safety training that Susan & John convinced Soren Erikson to bring to us woodland owners? What unselfish, caring, great folks they both were. Susan will be sorely missed by so many of us that she helped and motivated.”

As a Landowner, Why Do I Need A Contract?
When managing your forestland, you may need to hire a forester, logger, TSI contractor, or another service provider to assist you with that management. A contract in these situations is very important as it allows both parties to get their expectations of the service up front before any work begins. The American Forest Foundation has education and resource information concerning landowner contracts. See their guidance on this subject.
