Contributing to Stewardship through Long-term Research including Research Conducted on the Kane and Vinton Furnace Experimental Forests

These records have great potential to help us determine whether recent climate changes have impacted forest growth and mortality, leading to improved confidence in potential future impacts. We also maintain long-term records of forest change in two nationally important remnant old-growth forests, the Tionesta Scenic and Research Natural Area (record begun in 1942) and the Hearts Content National Natural Landmark (record begun in 1928).
