Framework Trees

Forests are a dominant feature of the New England landscape. This course covers the history, changes in composition, and ecology of the region’s forest from the Ice Age through European settlement. We explore the impact of past natural and human disturbances on the landscape and learn how current forestry practices shape forest communities. You will learn to identify native trees, their habitats, and their communities. (This course is also offered in live-virtual format. Register here for the live-virtual course.)

Please note: We do not make video or audio recordings of classes or programs available after the fact, because we believe education is interactive, with instructors and students building a community and culture of learning. Some programs may be recorded strictly for instructor-training purposes.
