North Central Finalist: Dale and
Cathy Paulson of Wisconsin
Dale has spent many years in the
woods, and his love of it is evident as
soon as you meet him. He serves as
an excellent ambassador of sound
forestry to the public. The fact that
he cuts his own timber ties him even
more to his property. Dale even
milled his own lumber in the days
when he worked at a local sawmill.
He often says, "I just want to leave it
better than I found it; leave it in good
shape for the next person."
Dale and Cathy's love for the
woods is as contagious as it is
boundless, and now their son,
Andrew, is beginning to acquire his
own properties which he manages
using the guiding principles laid
down by Dale and Cathy. The
Paulson's hosted the 2018 Wisconsin
Tree Farm Field Day, leaving visitors
inspired to take on new challenges
for their own properties.
With chainsaw in hand, Dale
has done all the harvesting on his
property, regenerating aspen and
red oak and released white pine and

mixed hardwood saplings. Because
Dale has cut everything himself the
result has been a diverse property
with varieties of age classes and
structure. This small-scale harvesting
allows for following the natural
contours of the property, each cut

Western Finalist: David and Dar New
of Washington
David and Darlina (Dar) New are third-generation
owners of the Nourse Tree Farm, located outside
of Arlington, WA. The land had been in Dar's family
for 76 years. Today, the New family continues to
find ways to work on the Tree Farm and promote
the values of the American Tree Farm System. The
ATFS decal is a template for their management,
and Dave and his family have demonstrated their
dedication to protect and manage the water, wood,
wildlife, and recreation elements on their Tree Farm.
Grateful for the assistance that local organizations
provided during their education, David and Dar
have hosted Washington State University Forestry
Extension and Conservation District workshops
and field tours. In the autumn of 2018, David
successfully organized a Tree Farm open house;
more than 200 people, including county and state
officials, and local, natural resource organizations
were in attendance. The New family continues to
showcase their Tree Farm management and assist
local agencies in educational opportunities.

completely customized to that area
and the unique mix of trees that
have grown there. Not only does this
provide for excellent wildlife habitat
and biological diversity on his property,
it helps to protect the fragile, red clay
soils that dominate the landscape.
