The 27th annual Harvard Forest Ecology Symposium will be held Tuesday, March 15th from 9:00 a.m.
Our sugaring season began Feb. 1 this year, a full two weeks earlier than usual. Bullard Fellow Joshua Rapp taps Harvard Forest trees to inform several inter-related studies of sugar maple.
Snowfall affects forest tree growth and function well beyond the winter season, says a new study of a dozen Harvard Forest red oak and red maple trees, recently published in the journal Ecosystems.
The Forest's newest interpretive trail, the French Road Trail, is now open to the public. The trail begins outside the Fisher Museum on Prospect Hill Road, and is available as a brochure and virtual tour.
