Connecticut Professional Timber Producers Association
On December 6, TIMPRO President Brennan Sheahan handed over a check for $4500 to Marissa Troiano, Development Coordinator of the Connecticut Children’s Medical Center. That’s $500 more than last year’s donation and signals our growing commitment to this institution. The Connecticut Children's Medical Center is a comprehensive pediatric hospital in Hartford. The hospital serves more than 15,000 children in primary care services, 55,000 in emergency care services, and 6000 in surgical services annually.
And we couldn't have done it without all our generous domors. THANK YOU ALL!
WHAT IT IS LIKE TO WORK IN THE WOODS TODAY
"Neither rain nor snow nor dark of night": This is the motto of our United States Postal Service but it could also be the motto of the tireless men and women who work in our woods. We go out of our way to avoid working on rainy soft soil. The frozen winter forest shown here is the best time for us to work since it protects the soil from our equipment and activities. So, when most people are warm and dry inside, we're braving the cold, ice, and snow. The picture below of a snowy work day in the woods was taken by TIMPRO Secretary Gerald Bellows on Bethel Rd in Griswold Ct
The Connecticut Professional Timber Producers Association are committed to informing its members of legislation affecting the Connecticut forest products industry and will provide testimony to the legislature on behalf of its membership.
Continuing Education Programs
The Connecticut Professional Timber Producers Association sponsors workshops throughout the year to meet the growing demands of the forest products industry. All programs are approved by the CT DEP Division of Forestry for CEU credits for CT Certified Forest Practitioners. Visit the Calendar on this website for updates on classes and programs.
Community Outreach Programs
The Association reaches out to the non-forestry community to improve the image and understanding of the forest products industry. We accomplish this through involvement in school programs, participation in agricultural fairs and events and sponsorship of educational programs. The Connecticut Professional Timber Producers Association is also the proud sponsor of the Connecticut Log A Load for Kids Campaign which raises money annually for the Hartford Connecticut Children's Medical Center.
