We are partnering with the University of Vermont and our neighboring landowner, The Nature Conservancy, to host a research experiment exploring effective ways to manage our forests with a changing climate, while also sustaining other values, including biodiversity conservation. We can help our forests stay healthy and productive while continuing to provide all the benefits we depend upon.

We’ll visit a recently completed timber harvest and discuss the strategies used to improve forest health, climate change resilience, timber production, habitat, and more.
