At the Killingworth Firehouse
Emery Gluck, one of only seven state land foresters and a fascinating and very engaging speaker, will provide background information on Cockaponset State Forest, how farmland abandonment, forest fires and the charcoal industry played a dominant role in shaping Connecticut’s current forests; and the use of tree harvests and controlled burns to maintain our disturbance dependent forests and wildlife habitat.
Why We Cut Trees and Have Controlled Burns in CT State Forests
This talk is presented by the Killingworth Land Conservation Trust and will be free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.
Emery Gluck has been a forester with Connecticut DEEP’s Division of Forestry for 36 years and is an extraordinarily knowledgeable woodsman who works in Cockaponset, Nehantic and Pachaug State Forests.
