April Feature - Build on “Caring for the Land and Serving People”

Northern Research Station scientists develop knowledge that is vital to restoring and sustaining rural and urban forests now and into the future. Our accomplishments include capturing the state of knowledge surrounding restoration of the iconic elm tree in a new publication, using local citizen knowledge of city landscapes to more equitably position green space across communities, maintaining a 60-year study that is answering the original question and a great deal more, and helping managers plan for the future by modeling the distribution of birds and trees in the Northeast in the face of a changing climate. This month we feature a scientist, research, a product and partnership all focused on fulfilling our mission to care for the land and serve people.
