  • Massachusetts Forest Scenarios Study - New England Forestry Foundation
    evaluated by Harvard and the Smithsonian Specifically NEFF s Executive Director Bob Perschel helped craft the forest management practices to be included in the Forests as Infrastructure scenario basing his prescriptions on what NEFF does on our own lands and advocates for in state forest policy across the region And those practices excelled producing the best results of any scenario evaluated with respect to seven of nine environmental variables and nearly comparable results on the others This means for example that managing our forests produced lower storm water flows during heavy rains which in turn have become dramatically more intense in the last 50 years Managed forests also delivered more wildlife habitat more wood products less fragmentation of the landscape and less loss of soil nutrients Moreover while not evaluated in the Harvard study the Forests as Infrastructure scenario also would deliver economic returns to forest landowners and communities The results of this study can be a game changer in NEFFs mission to bring excellent forestry to New England forests It is the first time such a powerful set of computer analyses addressed the interaction between forestry and ecological values at a landscape level We were told the computer processing requirements were so massive that the Smithsonian computers could not keep up and time had to be purchased from the Amazon cloud The programs actually modeled the effects at the acre level and then collated results up to the landscape level The intent of the study was to get a picture of future possibilities now that Massachusetts is losing forest land to residential and commercial development after decades of forest expansion Four scenarios were modeled One projected out current trends in both land development and conservation out 50 years A second assumed economic boom times increased development and relaxed land
