Forest Health Toolkit Now Available
The Metrowest Conservation Alliance (MCA) has produced a Forest Health Toolkit to help conservation commissions and local land trusts assess the health of their wooded properties and make decisions about land management. Although designed primarily for volunteers who care for public lands, the toolkit is also appropriate for anyone who owns a wooded property.
Forest Health: An Introductory Guide for Conservation Volunteers of Eastern Massachusetts describes the visual cues that indicate how well a forest can sustain both itself and the wildlife that rely upon it. Download a copy.
MCA programs are coordinated by SVT.
