Forestry and Horticulture
The foresters and horticulturists of the Station seek new crops for Connecticut farms and nurseries, learn how to accelerate and prolong the ripening of crops, and how to manage the forest to a desired composition. They also study the impact of the gypsy moth, diseased and disturbance upon our suburban forests. State forests contain experiments with the effects of insects, diseases of trees, and the natural changes, renewal and growth of our forests.
