Connecticut’s Forest History

May 31, 2016

Presented By Tom Worthley, Project Manager UConn CLEAR, UConn and Jeff Ward, Department of Forestry and Horticulture, The Connecticut Agricultural Experiment Station

Aligned with the theme of Connecticut’s Changing Landscape, but looking much farther back in time, we will discuss the natural forces and human land-use activities that have shaped the composition and structure of the forest resource in CT as we see it today. Historical narratives and images, along with some data and discussion of current trends can be anticipated.
