After three years, the Local Wood Initiative is moving into a new phase, and we need your input.
Please fill out this short Local Wood Initiative Survey. We would love to have over 250 responses.
It is becoming very obvious the climate is changing, and we are facing extreme weather like last summer’s drought and the current floods. The population of deer ticks is growing, and the percentage carrying Lyme disease is high in this area. Our woodlands are suffering diseases like Beech bark disease, emerald ash borer, Dutch elm disease to name a few. Invasive species are affecting our waterways and wetland.
We need to adapt to the new reality and find ways cut our carbon foot print such as supporting local producers, saving energy, using less fossil fuels less and more renewables.
Please help by filling in the Local Wood Initiative Survey and giving us your ideas.
On a more positive note enjoy these signs of spring.
