Since the early 1980s, Land’s Sake has provided a model for small-scale, sustainable forestry. Working with the Weston Conservation Commission, we rotationally harvest cordwood from different parcels of Weston’s conservation land. Since then, our forestry department has grown to include other forest-related activities including maple syrup production and growing cut-your-own christmas trees. These activities allow us to use different parcels of town forest for a variety of activities, and engage the public in different types of forestry.
In addition to managing pieces of Weston’s forests, we also manage some of the open space around town. Our Sustainable Land Management department is responsible for mowing parts of the 100 mile trail system in town in cooperation with the Weston Forest and Trails Association, as well as maintaining an aesthetic and functional landscape on our agricultural fields.
