February NEMF & NWMF Meetings

NEMF Meeting:
Date:  Thursday, February 20, 2020
Time: 
10:00am – 12:00pm
Location: 
Village of Lombard – 255 E Wilson Ave., Lombard
Speaker:
  Joe Hansen, City of Park Ridge
Topic:  Reforestation
Summary:  This presentation will focus on the utilization of technology for managing data, planning and implementation of Park Ridge’s reforestation program.  Using a GIS collector app, the City has streamlined the ever continuing process of keeping track of the “what’s” and the “where’s” by being able to quickly edit data in the field and visually gauge progress during each step of the process.  We will also discuss the City’s use of a long term nursery contract and how it has affected costs, quality and productivity.

We currently don’t have a sponsor for food so if anyone would like to sponsor this event or supply food, please let me know. 
If anyone has a subject they would like covered, please let Terry know and he will try to find speakers, or if you know of someone to speak for us, let me know. I have had a few requests for a crane operations talk and will be looking at arranging something for the near future . Also, I believe we will be trying to have a few more outdoor practical meetings covering rigging and climbing applications once the weather gets warm.
