Planting Forests

Planting Forests

The forest lands of the North East that we know today looked much different a century ago. The mature forests that existed then were mostly clear-cut to provide construction material for houses and fire fuel to heat homes and commercial locations.

Through the efforts of organizations like the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) and the U.S. Forest Service many areas were re-planted and transformed into state forests. Today these woodlands serve as natural ecosystems for native species, recreational areas for people and a source of revenue for the state through sustainable lumber harvesting.
