Tea with a Spot of History : The Impending Fuel Crisis, Suffolk County, 1850

September 12, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm


Woodcutters, Fires, and the Long Island Railroad’s impact on the Forests of Brookhaven

How did commercial enterprises impact the native forests of Brookhaven?  What was the major “farm” export from Brookhaven in the nineteenth century?  How long does it take for a Brookhaven Forest to regenerate itself?  What was the distribution of forest types in Brookhaven before, during and after commercial exploitation?  How do the forests of today reflect the past exploitation?  What is the relationship between forest type and water supply?

Presented by Frank Turano
