Haseltine Preserve, Amherst NH

Jon Stout’s work was so meticulous and exacting, so sensitive to natural ecology, that I invited him to come and do work on my own land. He is the best and most principled professional logger I have met in the south-central NH region. Easy to work with and highly ethical, he does truly excellent work!

A Pictorial and Commentary on the recent work completed by TSI Logging in Amherst, New Hampshire’s Haseltine Preserve, by Charles Denton.

“I was astonished by the excellent quality of forestry work done by Jon Stout at a 100 acre community preserve, in Amherst. I am not used to see major tree harvests done with such care and thoughtfulness. What I saw gives me hope that there are still idealistic and skilled loggers out there, who do not just trying to extract the last buck out of a cut.

“The area had been (heavily) infested by woolly adelgid in the abundant hemlock groves. Jon and the town forester worked up a plan to extract the diseased trees and create selective clearings for new growth without blighting the landscape. The final result is testament to Jon’s skill and commitment to doing minimally invasive and ethical forestry. It is one of the finest harvests I have ever seen, preserving the trail system and natural beauty of the spot while carrying out some pretty rigorous removal, trying to stop the spread of the hemlock infestation in Southern NH.”
