Forests as Climate Solutions-Public Input Session

November 14 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

While the moratorium on management projects on state land proceeds, Massachusetts plans to support, actively promote, and fund “climate smart forestry”. This public meeting is about how “climate smart forestry” will be defined. 
From the Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs:
The Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs invites you to join a public meeting to hear updates about and provide input on the Forests as Climate Solutions Initiative, a comprehensive effort to conserve and manage forest land in the Commonwealth. As part of this initiative, EEA has convened a climate forestry committee of experts to help the Commonwealth develop climate-oriented guidelines for forest management on state lands. The state will also use these guidelines as the basis for incentives to advance climate-oriented forest management practices on other forest lands.
On November 14, 2023, from 6:30 – 8:30 pm, a virtual meeting will be held to share updates and seek feedback regarding development of the forest management guidelines. EEA will also provide updates on other aspects of the Forests as Climate Solutions Initiative.
