Green Mountain National Forest is a national forest located in Vermont, a temperate broadleaf and mixed forest typical of the New England/Acadian forests ecoregion. The forest supports a variety of wildlife, including beaver, moose, coyote, black bear, white-tailed deer, wild turkey, and ruffed grouse.
The Forest's diverse landscapes range from the rugged, exposed heights of the Green Mountains to the quiet, secluded hollows in the Wilderness. The Forest is within a day’s drive of 70 million people.
Today, the nearly 400,000-acre Green Mountain National Forest contains more than 2000 archaeological and historic sites spanning the history of Vermont. Of interest are Native American sites, the remains of colonial-era subsistence farmsteads, and evidence of the technologies of the industrial period. Other sites include the roads, structures and facilities built by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930's.
The Forest's scenic beauty along the backbone of Vermont's Green Mountains offers unlimited recreation opportunities any season of the year.

Encompassing a boundary area of approximately 821,000 acres, roughly 385,000 (or 62%) is federally owned. Green Mountain is one of the few Forests that required, and still requires, the purchase of privately-owned land.
Over the past five decades, Forest Service personnel have worked hard to acquire a land base on which to practice modern forest management, thus providing the state of Vermont and the New England area with wood for local industries; natural recreation areas; a vibrant watershed for local tributaries; game and fish management; and protection of unique ecological and wilderness areas.
