Connecticut proceeds with timber cleanup effort after Sandy

Wednesday, January 9, 2013

The many white pines in the Centennial Watershed State Forest that were either felled or damaged due to Hurricane Sandy will be given new life as lumber.

“Removing the fallen timber during the next several months is imperative to preserving the value and usefulness of the wood as lumber,” said Gary Haines, Aquarion Water Company's chief forester in charge of the salvage operation. Proceeds from the sale of the wood will defray the cost of removing it.
