330 trees planted on the Nulhegan!

Tuesday, May 14th, 2019

The East Branch of the Nulhegan in Bloomfield has historically seen heavy logging, and the Nulhegan served as a log transport system to the nearby Connecticut River, moving logs long distances from upland forests to downstream markets.  With time, the river is reestablishing its meanders.  With help, Vermont River Conservancy is helping reestablish forested buffers along the Nulhegan River.  Partnering with Native Geographic and the Essex County Natural Resource Conservation District, with funding support from an NRCS EQIP contract, VRC planted 330 native trees and shrubs.  See them here wearing guards to protect them from deer browse!  Thanks so much Jesse Mohr and Heather Johnson for making this planting a huge success.
