We are hard at work developing the proceedings from the conference, including executive summaries of the morning sessions and the working sessions, so stay tuned for that.

The DendroEcological Network: a new FEMC tool for accessing data on thousands of tree cores across the Northeast


We are pleased to announce the release of a new FEMC product, the DendroEcological Network (DEN), available online at https://www.uvm.edu/femc/dendro.

We are offering a 30-minute webinar on Wednesday, November 28th, at 11 am to introduce the content, benefits, and search capabilities of the DEN.

The mission of the DendroEcological Network (DEN) is to provide an online repository for dendrochronological and associated forest ecology data, as well as offer a cyberinfrastructure for the discovery, exploration, and sharing of that data. Using this portal, users can find data on over 4000 cores (and counting!) from 2500 trees across multiple projects, making it easier and faster to integrate data across projects and answer key questions about how our region’s trees are growing.

Click here to register for the DendroEcological Network Webinar.

You can learn more about some of our other data-driven tools and check out our current regional projects. Finally, if you haven’t already done so, don’t forget to register for the 2018 FEMC Conference on December 14, 2018.

The 2018 Forest Ecosystem Monitoring Cooperative Conference is just around the corner on December 14, 2018 in Burlington, VT, and we are pleased to release the agenda and announce that registration is open! This year’s theme is “Forests and Climate Change: Managing impacts and planning for the future”.

Conference Agenda Released

Attached is the latest agenda - including contributed talks, posters, and working group sessions – which is also available online at: https://www.uvm.edu/femc/cooperative/conference/2018/agenda. This year features a stellar plenary line-up, a record-breaking number of contributed talk submissions, and some phenomenal special working sessions in the afternoon (and it’s still not too late to propose one of your own!). We will continue to provide updates to the agenda on this page, so check back often. We are in the process of requesting SAF Continuing Forestry Education credits for this conference, last year, we were able to offer 4.5 CFE credits.

Registration Open

In addition, registration for the conference is now open at https://www.uvm.edu/femc/cooperative/conference/2018/register.  Registration costs $23 per person ($21 when you register in a group of 3 or more). When you register, we ask which afternoon working group session you expect to attend, and if you plan to attend the afternoon social hour and poster session.  Your answers to these questions are non-binding but important, as they will allow us to plan for the appropriate numbers at each event.  Thank you in advance.

The Dean's Office of the Rubenstein School of Environment and Natural Resources has generously provided funds for 20 complimentary registrations for graduate students available on a first-come first-served basis. Write to John Truong to request a free graduate student registration.

Parking Information

For parking information please see:  http://www.uvm.edu/~tpswww/parking/visitor/ and plan to park in the Gutterson parking garage, as there won’t be enough space in the Jeffords lot. Those of you driving Vermont State and Federal vehicles may park in non-metered spaces without a permit.


If you have any questions about the conference or any issues registering, please do not hesitate to get in touch. We look forward to seeing you at the conference on December 14th!
