The Mohawk Trail Woodland’s Partnership will hold an Oaks in New England Forests: Keystones for Biodiversity and Resiliency webinar on December 11th from 10 to 11:30 am.
Three quarters of the forests of southern New England are dominated by oaks which play an important role in carbon sequestration, soil stabilization and watershed management due to their enormous root systems. Native oak trees also host a complex web of wildlife, including more than 500 species of moths and butterflies.
Oak trees are facing growing pressures that compromise their health and ability to regenerate. In this webinar Desiree Narango from UMass Amherst and Logan Johnson from the Forest Stewards Guild, will discuss the importance and health of oak trees.
The program is free and open to the public.
