With 80 percent of our land in trees, forestry is the dominant land use in Merrimack County. More than 400,000 forested acres - 70 percent of the county's forested land - is in the hands of private, non-industrial landowners.
The UNH Cooperative Extension Forestry and Wildlife Program helps citizens and landowners learn about and care for New Hampshire's forests, trees, wildlife and habitats.
How we can help:
- Landowner visits
- Assistance to Professionals
- Assistance to Communities
Help us slow the spread
Emerald ashborer (EAB) was found in New Hampshire (Concord, March 2013). EAB attacks ash trees, and is responsible for the death of millions of ash trees in the midwest. Help us slow the spread.
