Climate

The Forest Society is uniquely positioned to affect statewide response to climate change:  we are one of the largest private forest landowners in the New Hampshire.  We have a deep pool of engaged members and volunteers who care for and about our forests. And we have a consistent record of successful conservation advocacy. 

Our Climate Action Plan, currently being finalized, addresses how the Forest Society will use its capacity as a land trust and forestry organization to address the threats presented by a changing climate using land conservation, sustainable forest management, advocacy, and educational outreach. In doing so, we will be mindful of the footprint of our own activities, and move to reduce harmful emissions related to our operations.
