What is Proforestation?

A Standing Trees Vermont Conversation with Dr. William Moomaw

What is Proforestation? How does it compare to what is happening on Vermont's federal and state public lands? For years we have listened to the forestry timber-speak about sustainable forest management, afforestation and reforestation, and various other terms all of which ultimately involve logging. But a new word and a new concept - Proforestation - is gaining traction and deserves our support! Come learn from a proforestation pro! Bill Moomaw is part of a team who is working to change the narrative about forests and climate.

William Moomaw is Emeritus Professor of International Environmental Policy, Center for International Environment and Resource Policy, Fletcher, Tufts University. He was a lead author of 5 Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change reports. He currently serves as co-director of the Global Development and Environment Institute at Tufts, which he co-founded, and he is also a Visiting Scientist at Woodwell Climate Center. He received his B.A. degree in chemistry from Williams College and Ph.D. in physical chemistry from MIT.
