The forest at Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Park holds the special distinction of being Vermont’s first tree farm and is a newly designated Forest of Recognized Importance (FORI), the only of its kind in the state.
What is a Tree Farm? What makes a forest “important”? If you find yourself wondering these things, you’ll want to join us for this special webinar on August 9th, from 12:00-1:00pm and hear from a distinguished panel of experts, including our very own Deputy Superintendent Christina Marts and Kathleen Wanner, executive director of the Vermont Woodlands Association.
In this presentation, we will learn what a tree farm is, what features make a forest a “Forest of Recognized Importance,” and hear from Christina the unique and special history of the forest at Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Park, and how it has evolved over time to present day!
