A Forestry Walk on City of Northampton Water Supply Property on October 18, 2017

Join the City of Northampton Department of Public Works (DPW) and their consulting forester on a forest walk on water supply land to discuss ongoing projects. We will review a current horse-logging operation in the Roberts Meadow watershed and walk to a nearby stand of red pines to look at DPW efforts to nurture maple trees to replace the pines. We’ll also look at a nearby stand of overcrowded white pine that is slated for thinning, in an effort to improve the health of the remaining trees. These areas are all complex situations due to the presence of non-native invasive plants. Walk starts at the intersection of Chesterfield Rd and Reservoir Rd in Northampton on October 18, 2017 from 3:30 – 4:30 PM

Attendees should wear sturdy shoes and be prepared to walk over uneven terrain. Bug spray is recommended. No registration is required.
