[ARCHIVED] Community Forest Management Plan for the Irvington Woods

Virtual Public Presentation, March 14th 2022 at 7pm

The Village of Irvington is developing its first Community Forest Management Plan (CFMP) for Irvington Woods.  Arborist Miguel Berrios of LBS Ecological has been working closely with the Village of Irvington, its Recreation and Parks Department, and the O’Hara Nature Center to inventory the Woods and determine best management practices to improve forest health.

The vision for the project is to create a CFMP that will serve as clear directions to improve the Village's urban forest management efforts in the Woods. In recommending the most effective combination of site interventions for Irvington Woods, the project will enable improvements in native species diversity retention, invasive plant removal, evidence of the regeneration and growth of native tree species, and protection of the public via reduced risk from hazardous trees. A healthy, regenerating forest will improve quality of life, and deliver economic, social and health benefits. 

A public presentation of the draft CFMP was held on March 14, 2022. View the video of the public presentation.
