The Lamoille County Planning Commission completed a study and developed tools under the USDA Forest Service Redesign Grant to help regions and towns address priority forest landscapes.


““Making Landscape-Scale Forest Stewardship Accessible to All” connected eight of Vermont’s Regional
Planning Commissions (RPCs) with the Vermont Department of Forests, Parks, and Recreation (FPR). This was
Phase 2 of a multi-year effort to apply geographic information system (GIS) technology and a stakeholder
engagement process to inventory and assess forest resources, identify forest landscape types, and produce
strategies to assist regions, municipalities, and forest landowners in keeping forests as forests.”
