About this Location

The Yale Toumey Forest is 1930 acres in area (764 hectares) and is located in the towns of Keene and Swanzey, in Cheshire County, New Hampshire. The original tract of this forest was also a gift by George Hewitt Myers.

The forest is mostly comprised of white and red pine, all of plantation or old-field origin and as a result of hurricane blowdowns. The soils of the Assabet river valley are of glacial sandy outwash origin and promote a coniferous ecosystem typical of the region. This forest is utilized as a pallet for young foresters at Yale to hone their skills in the management of conifer and mix wood ecosystems. The area also serves as a home for collaborative research within Yale and neighboring academic institutions.
