In Shrewsbury, VT on the Stout/Rice Property. On this walk, we will explore why our Vermont forests are so critical for mitigating climate change. The focus will be to observe what we as landowners can do to enhance Carbon Sequestration and Storage (CSS) to enable our forests to become ever-growing carbon sinks. Now’s an exciting time to observe CSS in action because Vermont is introducing options for landowners to actively apply it to their land. Jockey Hill Farm in Shrewsbury is currently under assessment for participation in two of these programs, and other landowners might want to consider CSS for their land. Tim Stout, landowner, will be joined by Sarah Ford, Regional Forester for Forest Carbon Works, and Tim’s consulting forester, Mike White of Calfee Woodland Management. Have questions, need directions, contact Tim at email@example.com or (617) 899-1011. This event is sponsored by Sustainable Woodstock, Shrewsbury Conservation Commission and Northam Forest Carbon.
