A professionally managed timber harvest is being conducted in a small portion of the Kimball Pond Conservation Area. Forestry management and timber stand improvement is one of the responsibilities the Conservation Commission has under the federal Forest Legacy program which contributed substantial funding for creation of the area. Among the Commission's goals at Kimball Pond is wildlife habitat protection. One of the aspects of this timbercut is to improve habitat for the endangered New England Cottontail rabbit.
Our thanks go to Dunbarton resident and professional forester Ed White who planned and is supervising this project for the Conservation Commission.
