Old forests, with their abundant nesting cavities and down wood in all stages of decay, are important in many ways but are rare in our landscape. They help to keep the air and water clean, provide habitat for a variety of fungi, plants, and animals, and keep carbon out of the atmosphere. We cannot create the old forests that once dominated the Northeast, but we can promote some of their characteristics through careful forest management. Join UVM professor Dr. Tony D’Amato and University of Massachusetts professor Dr. Paul Catanzaro to learn about when it is appropriate to do this kind of management, and how to plan for it.
