Plant Trees In Vermont
Why Plant in Vermont?
Hotter summers and heavier rainfall in Vermont are impacting local economies (including maple syrup production) and threatening the environment.
- The average annual temperature has increased by 1.3° fahrenheit since 1960; an astounding 45% of this change is since 1990.
- Extended summer dry spells are placing more stress on important tree species such as the sugar maple and red spruce, which have already experienced periods of decline.
