Explore Distinctive Old Forests

Large, tall, majestic trees are the iconic image of old forests. But that’s only part of the picture. Trees in old forests can be short, small in girth, and anything but majestic.

Join us for a virtual tour of unusual examples of old forests in Vermont. From airy cliff brows to damp and mossy swamps, learn about some surprising settings where trees can be hundreds of years old. In addition, learn about the natural communities, plants, and animals found in these special places. Finally, learn how you can visit some of these distinctive old forests.
