On July 27 a federal government spokesman told the Valley Post that Vermont is losing about 14,000 acres of forest every year, mostly due to construction of vacation houses that are almost always vacant. Land trusts like the Vermont Land Trust, which has a Brattleboro office, protect land from development. Politicians decide how much money to give to land trusts. Most forestland protected by land trusts gets logged. A Massachusetts based group that works throughout New England to stop logging has a web site at www.restore.org.
