People worldwide have heated with wood for thousands of years. New Englanders are no exception and have long depended on native forests to provide wood for warmth. But set aside old images of the inefficient fireplace and smoking wood stove. New technology has made wood burning appliances a truly modern way to use this traditional fuel.
The Massachusetts Forest Alliance represents and advocates on behalf of forest landowners, industry professionals, businesses, and others who support a strong, sustainable forest economy in the Commonwealth. MFA works on a variety of policy initiatives, including tax programs, property zoning, biomass, roadways, and many more regulations that affect our membership.
The Last Green Valley (TLGV), the MassConn Sustainable Forest Partnership (MassConn) and the Northern Rhode Island Conservation District (NRICD) are now offering a new opportunity for landowners to obtain forest management plans with bird habitat assessments for woodlands in 28 towns in eastern Hampshire, eastern Hampden and southern Worcester counties.
One of the wonderful things about the holiday season is the chance to enjoy the natural aromas of a fresh Christmas tree in your house. Whether you buy a tree pre cut at a local retailer, or go with your family to a nearby Christmas tree farm to choose and cut your tree, or cut a tree you’ve grown yourself, getting a fresh natural Christmas tree is one of most pleasant family rituals of the holiday season.
