New Hampshire is the second most forested state in the country, but according to our guest today, UNH Professor and Ecologist, Scott Olinger, our forests face serious challenges from climate change to invasive species. Today on the Exchange, we're looking at what's happening to our trees, what cane be done to protect them and the environmental significance of our forests.
