Deep in the heart of the Northeast Kingdom, a team of researchers is launching an ambitious experiment to improve forest diversity

Deep in the heart of the Northeast Kingdom, a team of researchers is launching an ambitious experiment to improve forest diversity, resiliency and habitat, while better understanding and anticipating climate change and its impact on the region. The study has been years in planning, could deliver data and results for decades, and seeks ways to restore a landscape altered by well over a century of industrial logging. The project is a collaboration between the University of Vermont and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and is being conducted in the Nulhegan Basin Division of the Silvio O. Conte National Fish and Wildlife Refuge in northern Essex County.
