Virtual Public Presentation, March 14th 2022 at 7pm
The Village of Irvington is developing its first Community Forest Management Plan (CFMP) for Irvington Woods. Arborist Miguel Berrios of LBS Ecological has been working closely with the Village of Irvington, its Recreation and Parks Department, and the O’Hara Nature Center to inventory the Woods and determine best management practices to improve forest health.
The vision for the project is to create a CFMP that will serve as clear directions to improve the Village's urban forest management efforts in the Woods. In recommending the most effective combination of site interventions for Irvington Woods, the project will enable improvements in native species diversity retention, invasive plant removal, evidence of the regeneration and growth of native tree species, and protection of the public via reduced risk from hazardous trees. A healthy, regenerating forest will improve quality of life, and deliver economic, social and health benefits.
Join us for a virtual public presentation on Monday, March 14th at 7pm, where Miguel will discuss the current state of the Irvington Woods and recommendations from the Community Forest Management Plan. We would appreciate your attendance and input!
