Project Overview

Building on previous work, this project developed several spatial data products to map forest species, forest cover, drivers of forest fragmentation, and potential risk of conversion for the entire state of Vermont as well as neighboring portions of New York, New Hampshire and Massachusetts. Within Vermont, fragmentation patterns were modeled at the scale of each Regional Planning Commission to develop drivers and risk maps tailored to each planning-relevant geography, yielding 15 extents at which modeling occurred.


To develop high-quality forest species maps and identify drivers and cumulative risk of forest conversion in Vermont and surrounding states.
