Forest Stewardship


Forest land is one of Foster's greatest assets. On this page we will collect a variety of information about forests in Rhode Island and in the Town of Foster as well as a number of other resources which provide information on forests and forest preservation. We invite your comments via email and please feel free to submit of links of interest.


A new threat to New England hardwood forests is the Asian Longhorned beetle.  Please see link below for information on how you can protect your trees.
