POTSDAM -- In the next new Peak Moment TV on WCKN-TV Dec. 16-17 at 7 p.m., host Janaia Donaldson returns to Aprovecho to talk with restoration forester Matthew Hall, who has a vision for the Aprovecho woods: a managed ancient forest.

Weaker trees are made into products while the larger trees stay in the forest forever. He retains nature's changes (like storm-dropped trees). He recruits snags. Tops snapped off of larger trees stay on the forest floor "to create a bank account of large woody debris." He's managing not just for the trees, but for the other communities who live here — soil, bugs, birds, and humans.

Peak Moment TV programs air every week at 7 p.m. on Monday and Tuesday on WCKN, Time Warner Digital Channel 30.

Peak Moment explores locally reliant living for challenging times. The programs are underwritten locally by The Center for Excellence in Communication at Clarkson University and the Seymour Family of Potsdam.

All the programs are available on the internet at www.wordpress.peakmoment.tv/conversations/ in both video and audio format.

In addition, more than 80 Peak Moment TV shows are now available on DVDs which can be borrowed from the Potsdam Public Library from the collection of shows purchased for broadcast locally
