Case Study: Staley Woodlot

Bob Staley

Bob Staley’s woodlot has been in the family since 1903. Although there was pasturing and some high grading, the lot has been yielding forest products since 1803. There are 8.6 acres of upland hardwood woodlot and 4.4 acres of white pine plantation and poplar stand on a 20 acre property on the Oak Ridges Moraine in York County. The balance of the woodlot is open field and swamp. There have been three large volume harvests in the 8.6 acre woodlot; 1967, 1977 and 1990 and a smaller one in 2007. As a Professional Forester, Bob took particular interest in improving the tree quality in this high-value forest.
