The New York State's Forest Preserve, a successful century old public land program, has been the target of new development projects that threaten its fragile ecosystem, particularly its trees. This paper examines the history, politics, and economics of the Forest Preserve in order to understand what factors led to its creation and why it is so important in times where many citizens are experiencing the effects of climate change for the first time in history.
