Legacy trees, snags and downed wood, oh my!

While we have precious few examples of old growth forest left in Vermont, we do have ways to restore the important characteristics that define old forests to our much younger forests of today. We’ll explore the large old sugar maple elders, piles of downed wood, standing dead trees, multiple layers of shrubs and trees and understory plants of Jerusalem Skyline Forest. Restoring these traits to our forests can also help us tackle some of the most pressing environmental problems including climate change, invasive species like Emerald Ash Borer and declining populations of forest birds.
