Town and Community Forests

An overlooked and underused resource

New Hampshire’s town forest tradition is strong—the first in the nation was established in 1710 in Newington (then part of Dover). Today, over 200 towns have a town forest. These forests are for people to come together, learn about the stewardship of the natural world and recreate alone or in groups.
