As New York forest landowners, we know the importance of being good stewards of the Empire State’s 19 million acres of forests. From the northern reaches of the Adirondacks to the Rensselaer Highlands to the Allegheny Plateau, New York’s forests provide us with so many benefits and commonalities – clean air, open space, recreation, water, and birds. With 700,000 landowners managing three quarters of our forest cover, private lands play a critical role in our conservation approaches. Climate and nature are interconnected challenges and our forests are currently facing unprecedented challenges. How can we leverage partnerships and approach habitat, forest resiliency, carbon, and traditional forest ecosystem services in a holistic manner?
