Susquehanna County, 494 acres
The Pennsylvania Outstanding Tree Farmer of the Year Award for 2004 was bestowed upon Dave and Carol Clemens of Hallstead, PA. They own approximately 500 acres of forestland managed as a Tree Farm for improved timber, water, recreation, and wildlife benefits.
Although their tract of land is larger than most PA Tree Farmers, this isn't the reason they won the award. It was their dedication to and application of the Tree Farm mission that made them outstanding. This mission is: to promote the growing of renewable forest resources on private lands while protecting environmental benefits and increasing public understanding of all benefits of productive forestry.
