So, what is the "State of the Forest" in the Catskill Mountains? That's kind of a difficult question, but we'll give it our best shot. We'll mostly cover the major drivers or influences upon today's forests. We'll also cover some forest history, trends in forest ownership, present management and concerns, and things you can do to make improvements. Obviously, our "Forestry in the 21st Century" will be focused upon these Catskill Mountains.
