  • Organic Forest Health Conservation Checklist
  • List of Small-scale Woods Workers (logging/forwarding, trucking, milling). People often ask us for names of local, small-scale woods workers, including loggers, truckers, and sawyers. Our list is by no means exhaustive, but offers a place to start.
  • Portable Forwarding Bridges
    • Excellent video on using and building a portable forwarding bridge (from the Vermont Department of Forests, Parks, and Recreation). 14 minutes.
    • Written instructions for building a portable forwarding bridge.
  • Town Forest Health Check. Back in 2005, VFF created the Town Forest Health Check to support the Vermont Town Forest Project—a statewide initiative to strengthen connections between Vermonters and their community-owned forests. If you’re a community member interested in taking an active role in maintaining the health of your community’s town forest, take a look at the Town Forest Health Check. With it, you’ll be able to determine if the optimal conservation practices that maintain forest health are in place in your town forest.
