Invasive plants threaten the health of many forests in Vermont. In many instances these plants are in our forests due to past agricultural land uses.

The Crawford Town Forest in Royalton is an example of a forest impacted by past land use. This forest is one of many forests in our region dealing with these issues.

Vermont Woodlands will hold a Forest Rehabilitation Workshop at the Crawford Town Forest in Royalton, VT on June 20th from 5:30 to 7:30 pm.

At this town forest active measures have been made to rehabilitate the forest. These efforts include a harvest and invasive plant control.

This workshop presented by AJ Follensbee, Northen Windsor County Forester, Dana Hazen with Redstart Forestry, and the Natural Resource Conservation Service (NRCS), will discuss solutions for rehabilitating a forest impacted by past land use.

These solutions will include forest management options, invasive plant control methods and NRCS cost share opportunities.

The workshop will start at 5:30pm and end around 7:30pm. Participants will meet at a parking area off Mill Rd in Royalton about a half mile from Route 110.

Participants should plan to cover about a 1 mile of sometimes steep terrain.
