Our History

- Mary A. Herrick Memorial Forest - 

William E. Dorman donated his family's 100-acre Tree Farm to New England Forestry Foundation (NEFF) in 1990. 

The forest was donated in memory of Mary Herrick, who was related to Mr. Dorman's mother.  The land had been in the Herrick family for at least seven generations, and Mary left it to her cousin's son William (Bill), who was an active conservationist.  To conserve the forest in her name, Bill donated the land to New England Forestry Foundation to become one of it's many community forests.  The forest is open for passive recreation, with an excellent trail system constructed primarily by Bill himself.  The High Ridge Trail connects Herrick Rd. to High Ridge Rd. and is open for your enjoyment.   The Christmas Tree Farm was started in 1965 by Bill and his Family. He hired many local friends and acquaintances who became lifelong friends and in some cases partners. He passed in 2005.

His legacy continues to grow in Herrick Tree Farm !
