Reserve Forestland Presentation

Reserve Forestland
Thursday, April 20, 2023
7:00 – 8:30pm
Broad Brook Community Center, 3940 Guilford Center Road, Guilford
Hosted by the Guilford Conservation Commission

Windham County Forester and Guilford resident Sam Schneski will talk about a new land use category in Vermont’s Use Value Appraisal (UVA) program called Reserve Forestland. This change will allow landowners, whose land is eligible, to develop “old forest” conditions on their property while participating in the UVA program (also know as the Current Use program).

The presentation is based on the new UVA subcategory but will address ways that anyone can manage forestland to increase old forest functions and characteristics, which provide important contributions to wildlife habitat, forest resilience in a changing climate, and more.
