Forestland Conservation

  • VHCB’s mission includes the conservation of Vermont’s forests, which have contributed economic benefits to many generations of Vermonters who work in the woods or who are engaged in forest products industries. Forests also provide wildlife habitat, water quality protection, flood resilience, carbon sequestration, and recreational amenities. 

    VHCB’s forest conservation efforts are focused in two areas: (1) the purchase of conservation easements on privately-owned working forests, and (2) the funding of land acquisitions by municipalities looking to create or enlarge a town forest.
