Winter Tree Identification Walk and Forest Carbon Discussion
Friday, January 27 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. at GMCG

Join UNH Cooperative Extension Forestry Specialist Wendy Scribner on Friday, January 27 from 1:00-4:00 for a Winter Tree Identification Walk at the Green Mountain Conservation Group’s conservation center located at 236 Huntress Bridge Rd in Effingham.  You will learn how to identify a variety of trees using buds, bark, and branching patterns. We will also talk about how our forests sequester and store carbon, and how different management practices can influence the rates of sequestration and storage. Factors including tree age, species diversity, past management practices, and soils influence how much carbon a forest can store. We’ll measure some trees on our walk and determine how much carbon is being stored.

This program is capped at 20 people. Please reserve your spot by emailing education@gmcg.org. Snow date is February 3rd, same time.
