Swap help with dock and boat-lift installation /removal

7 posts in this topic

Just a thought to see if there's any interest.

Kids are still too young to help lift any heavy items and it's not something a guy can do by yourself. Sick of asking people to help every year without my doing much for them in return. I guess I just feel guilty about it.

Anybody with cabins/lakefronts in the area that would be interested in swapping help with docks and boatlifts come spring and fall time? I'll help you if you help me. Would be nice to get a nice team of people (3 or 4) helping out.

Email me at vikings_numberone_fan (at) yahoo (dot) com.

I just bought a place on Andrew. I'd be interested since I don't know my neighbors at all.

Great to see a couple replies. Could you guys email me at the address I mentioned above so that we could try getting a date/time set for when everyone can do this?

I was just in the area yesterday and the ice is off so we can do this any time. For me it will be weekends only. I won't be able to make it this coming weekend (April 16) but should be able to do it any weekend after that. Sooner the better. Look forward to hearing from both of you and hopefully a couple others.

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
