The Richmond Town Forest was established in 2018. Through the generosity of the Andrews family, the Town acquired and conserved 428 acres of forestland and farmland through the Vermont Land Trust and the Vermont Housing and Conservation Board. This land will be protected as a Town Forest in perpetuity.

The Andrews Community Forest Committee meets the fourth Monday of every month at 7pm in the Town Center Meeting Room

Management Plan

The “Management Plan” that was approved on 11-19-18 (see link to plan below) provides general goals, objectives and administrative details for the management of the parcel. This year there is a “Forest Management Plan” that is intended to be an addendum to the 2018 “Management Plan,” providing specific data and information on the management of forests at the Andrews Community Forest.

Below are links to the draft of the “Andrews Community Forest — Forest Management Plan” and its attachments
