Description
Harvard Forest is a 1200 hectares, aggrading, temperate, 50 to 70 year old, mixed deciduous forest with moderately hilly terrain. The physical plant includes Shaler Hall, a brick building with offices, research laboratories, seminar room, the Harvard Forest archives, a library of 22,000 volumes, and the Fisher Museum with panoramic displays. In addition, it has dormitory accomodations for twenty-five persons and dining room and kitchen facilities, photographic suite and darkroom, a graphics and mapping room, a projection and film analysis room for video microscopy, and micro computers. Also, there are two greenhouses, the Director's house (David Foster), and four residences for research staff and their families. Also, there's the woods crew of three men, the forest manager and their back-hoe, bulldozer, tractor, crawler, dump truck, flat bed truck, pick up and van, wood working shop, and a sawmill.
