The Forest Society offers public access to some lovely land. There are scenic vistas to enjoy, ponds to fish, trails to hike and adventures to remember. But some properties, well, let’s just say some of them are still “in the rough.”
The history of land ownership for the Forest Society …
Good evening. My name is Jane Difley, and I am the President/Forester of the Society for the Protection of NH Forests. The Forest Society was founded in 1901 to “perpetuate the forests of New Hampshire through their wise use and their complete reservation in places of special scenic beauty.”
In light of the announcement a few weeks ago from Northern Pass that they are now proposing to bury Northern Pass transmission lines around the White Mountain National Forest--while leaving them largely overhead in Coos County and elsewhere--we want to let people know where we stand.
Northern Pass and Eversource will soon file applications with the state’s Site Evaluation Committee. Before doing so, state law requires them to hold public information sessions in each county in which they intend to build their transmission line.
