Summary

In this chapter, we use both original and repeat images of Vermont to document how the landscape has responded to human actions that include deforestation, reforestation, and road building. We use three examples to demonstrate how repeat photography of the same site at different times can be used to document—both qualitatively and quantitatively— landscape response to human actions with the thought that, by examining past landscape responses, we can better inform future land-use decisions. The images and research reviewed in this chapter are part of the Landscape Change Program, a digital image archive (www.uvm.edu/landscape).
