Welcome to the Forest Guild

North Atlantic Fire Science Consortium

The Forest Guild is part of a new project to increase knowledge about fire and its ecological role to the Northeast. Since 2009, the Forest Guild has been working with partners in the Southwest to put relevant fire science into the hands of practitioners. Now, with support from the Joint Fire Sciences Program, the North Atlantic Fire Science Consortium (NAFSC) will do the same in the Northeast.

The Forest Guild National Meeting is making a long-awaited return to New England in June of 2014. Join fellow members, colleagues, and future friends in this three-day gathering. Prepare for an exciting program of engaging speakers, stimulating field workshops, and lively discussions on the theme of adapting forests to the changing climate. Also, in keeping with Guild tradition, the National Meeting is an excellent opportunity to gather with friends and rekindle the spark that inspires the forest stewardship of our members across the landscape.
