Natural Resources


With 80 percent of our land in trees, forestry is the dominant land use in Merrimack County. More than 400,000 forested acres - 70 percent of the county's forested land - is in the hands of private, non-industrial landowners.

The UNH Cooperative Extension Forestry and Wildlife Program helps citizens and landowners learn about and care for New Hampshire's forests, trees, wildlife and habitats.
