The Original Forests of New Hampshire

Speaker Charles Cogbill, forest ecologist and co-author of The Changing Nature of the Maine Woods, will provide a fascinating introduction to the forests of New Hampshire from the emergence of the forests 12,000 years ago at the end of the Ice Age to the time of European arrival. We will learn about the latest in scientific research that helps explain how the forests have changed over time to what we have today. Charles will also discuss the role of key ecological forces such as climate change, insects, disease and wind storms and other agents of forest change.
