Vermont Arbor Day Ceremony

On Wednesday, April 22nd we held our annual Arbor Day ceremony at the State House where we designated the first Friday in May as Arbor Day, and recognized winners of the 5th grade Arbor Day poster contest and recipients of Tree City and Tree Line USA designation. To get people into the forest we were lucky to have the Northern Forest Center's 'Way of the Woods' mobile museum parked right in front of the State  House. For more information on Vermont's Arbor Day programs visit www.vtcommunityforestry.org.

US Forest Service Chief Visits Vermont

U.S. Forest Service Chief Abigail Kimbell joined Senator Patrick Leahy on Monday, May 18th to announce $50 million in grants to protect 24 working forests in 21 states, including Vermont, through the Forest Service’s Forest Legacy Program. 

Working with the Trust for Public Land, Vermont will receive $1.8 million this year toward purchasing a conservation easement on the 5,727-acre Eden Forest.  The Eden Forest links one of the last remaining large unprotected forested parcels in the northern Green Mountains to a larger conservation area reaching into Quebec. Protected through Legacy funds, the Eden Forest will continue serving as a biological corridor for animals such as bear and moose.  It will continue producing timber, sequestering carbon, safeguarding water supplies, and providing jobs as a working forest.

For more information on Vermont's Forest Legacy Program, visit www.vtfpr.org/lands/flp.cfm.
