What can the composition of tree species tell us about a forest? In Massachusetts, you can find forests dominated by large oaks and hickories, northern hardwoods, pitch pines and scrub oaks, and more. Learn how to identify forest types and what their presence can tell you about soil, weather, and geography. Explore the unique values of carbon sequestering in mature and old growth forests and how we can work together to protect them. You'll leave with a newfound appreciation for Massachusetts forests, as well as bucket list of locations to visit this year.
