How well Are the Woods?

For several years, the Northeastern States Research Cooperative has granted more than $8 million to fund more than 70 research projects across New England. The aim of those projects is to answer questions such as: Where is hemlock woolly adelgid most likely to invade in Vermont? Is the explosion of conservation easements on forestland actually producing better forestry? What is causing sugar maples to decline? What does a "working forest" mean? And how well do kingfisher hatchlings indicate stream health? According to the University of Vermont, the answers to some of these questions are beginning to come in.

For more information, visit the University of Vermont website.
