What do experienced foresters have to say about conserving forests in the Northeast? Find out at this Panel discussion!
Does using some of our region’s trees for heating buildings and generating electricity mesh with sound forest conservation principles?
We all want to do the right thing. But after hearing talks about climate change, proforestation and carbon sequestration, people are not sure about using our region’s trees for heating buildings. Can it be done sustainably?
If we want our forests to remain as forests, we need to cut through the theories and talk to those who have seen the results of both good and bad forest management–or lack of management. So we have set up a panel discussion with 3 professional foresters and one forestry consultant, each with more than 30 years of experience. All of them have a lot of stories to tell as they have seen good practices and bad, managed stands and those that have been left on their own. Let’s ask them, what is best practice for long term forest conservation and sustainability?
Our panel of Forestry experts: Robbo Holleron, Charlie Moreno,Kevin Evans, and Richard Donovan will share their combined 150 years of Forestry experience!
New Hampshire, Vermont, Maine and northern New York State are among the most heavily wooded regions of the U.S. How should these forests be treated?
Should we stop all logging? Are managed forests healthier?
Should sequestering the most carbon be our priority? How is that best accomplished?
Who is better to ask about forest conservation? After working in, advising on and observing the growth of northern New England’s forests for decades, our Panel has a broad, experienced and educated view of how we can best manage their growth, health, productivity and longevity.
This will be a lively discussion with 4 independent, long-term perspectives on how our region’s forests should be managed for true sustainability.
