Working Forests

The Forest Society's mission includes perpetuating New Hampshire's forests through their 'wise use', or sustainable forestry. Working forests--those managed to provide a renewable wood resource--are more likely to remain as forests rather than being lost to development. Visit this page to explore stories and projects related to working forests.

Langwood Tree Farm has participated in the N.H. Tree Farm program since 1979

Our foresters share what they learned at a NE meeting of foresters.

It was a great way to learn about the latest forestry research and network with our colleagues.

Students begin the program in kindergarten by planting their own Christmas trees at The Rocks.

Here are locations where Christmas trees grown at The Rocks are sold in New Hampshire for 2022, if you can't visit us in Bethlehem this year. Please contact each location for prices, availability, and hours.

  • Wakefield Lions Club
  • Spauldings in Bradford
  • Choose Franklin in Franklin
  • Dodges Agway in Hampton Falls
  • Coulstring in Newmarket

The program is aimed at connecting women forest landowners, managers, and stewards with new resources and skills.

Tree Farm of the year hosts annual field day.

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.
