Forester Frank Cervo will lead this program, showing two different sites in the James L. Goodwin State Forest, both of which were devastated by drought and gypsy moth defoliation in the past five years. The first site is an active logging site which is near completion, and the second has been marked and scheduled for treatment in the near future. We will discuss the plan for these sites, the role of disturbance in forest succession, the ways in which climate change is related, forest products, wildlife habitat, recreation, invasive species, and the long-term resiliency of forest resources at Goodwin.
