The first phase of Royalton’s forest management plan for the Crawford Town Forest (located behind the Town Offices) is scheduled to begin this week (August 18, 2021). This phase will entail a timber harvest on ~30 acres of low-grade white pine. Although this area of the forest will be dramatically altered and might appear messy or damaged after the logging operation, the trees that are cut have been consciously selected and marked by the Windsor County forester, AJ Follensbee, with the long-term goal of improving overall forest health. Mr. Follensbee explains the rationale for the harvest in this short video: Crawford timber harvest 2021.
This operation is predicted to take 3-4 weeks once it gets under way. During this time we expect increased truck and logging traffic to and from the landing site on Mill Rd. We recommend that the public avoid using the Town Forest hiking trails while active logging is taking place.
This coming fall we will plan a public walk through the Crawford Town Forest for all who are interested.

As a reminder, Royalton’s animal control ordinance prohibits dogs from the South Royalton Green, the Royalton Common, and the Carpenter Recreation Fields. Beginning on July 1, 2021 fines will be issued for violations of the ordinance. The fine for a first offense is $50.00.
Dogs are welcome at the trails behind the Town Office, at the Gilman Rd Recreation area, and at the Town Forest. Dogs may be walked on the trail that borders the Carpenter Athletic Fields, but must be kept off the fields themselves. As always, please remember to pick up after your dogs.
