Forestry

The Reservation Stewardship Department is responsible for the management of the Forest Society’s fee-owned lands (over 57,000 acres, the Forest Society’s largest asset). These lands are managed with a vision that is focused on the future, ensuring the biological richness of the state while providing economic and social returns to the organization, its members, and the public.

A poem about searching for female white ash trees and beseeching them to survive.

Since a single ash tree is either a male or a female (in some tree species this isn’t the case and a tree may have both male and female parts), it will be important to make sure we leave some of each uncut during the harvest, to provide the species an opportunity to pollinate and set viable seed.

Are you a woman who owns or manages forest land in New Hampshire?

In certain parts of the state, you can’t miss the invasive caterpillars munching their way through the forest, just as they did last summer.

The training was part of the "Women in the Woods" initiative.

The Forest Society recently welcomed four seasonal staff members to the team.

3rd and 4th graders met Forest Society staff for a tour of our recent timber harvest.
