Conservation Commission

The Corinth Conservation Commission has spearheaded many efforts for the benefit of all residents. Their projects include:

  • Tree planting/upkeep in many of Corinth’s hamlets
  • Returnable bottle collection at the transfer station with proceeds to benefit the CCC
  • Establishing and maintaining the Clement Loop and Roaring Ridge Trails
  • Establishing the Cookeville Mall as a way to give a second life to items otherwise destined for landfills
  • Overseeing ‘Green Up Vermont’ Day in Corinth
  • Establishing a community apple orchard behind the Town Hall (see slideshow below)

PROJECT HIGHLIGHTS:

Corinth Community Apple Orchard:

SPRING 2014–Virginia Barlow, the Corinth Town Tree Warden, has worked with the Conservation Commission to create a community orchard on town land right behind the Town Hall. Eight apple trees and two pears and a crabapple tree were planted in April, 2014 in holes dug by Tom Loftus and his backhoe. Trees were donated by Redstart Forestry, several Corinth friends, and E.C. Brown Nursery gave the town a generous discount. Spring blossoms will grace the site each year and in the future apples will be available for harvesting. Community members will learn to prune the trees and will tend to watering and weeding. We hope the deer will respect them.
