The Texas Forestry Association will host a field tour to highlight the Thomas Timber Investments 1,791-acre tree farm in Polk County from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on April 30. The local tree farm was named the 2022 Texas Outstanding Tree Farm of the Year. Claud Thomas and his sons manage their tree farm, located at 1342 Walding Rd., for timber income, wildlife habitat and recreation.

Hay-covered trailers will take guests to stops along the tree farm where professional foresters and natural resource providers will give presentations on prescribed burning/U.S. Forest Service grant programs; understory herbicide applications; timber management/basal area/tree stocking; and seedling selection/genetics. Continuing education units will be available for foresters and loggers.

The event is free and lunch will be provided but registration is required to reserve a spot.
