We’re sustainably managing woodlands in Weston.
Since the early 1980s, Land’s Sake has provided a model for small-scale, sustainable forestry. Working with the Weston Conservation Commission, we rotationally harvest cordwood from different parcels of Weston’s conservation land to improve the time quality of the remaining stand. Our forestry department has grown to include other forest-related activities including maple syrup production and growing cut-your-own Christmas trees. These activities allow us to use different parcels of town forest for a variety of activities, and engage the public in different types of forestry.
On behalf of the Weston Forest & Trail Association, Land’s Sake also assists with trail maintenance projects throughout the town. Over the past fifty years, the Weston Forest & Trail Association has designed and built one of the most extensive trail systems in the Boston suburbs, which includes almost 100 miles of trails. We have been proud to partner with this important land trust to maintain the commons of our community.
