Upton State Forest consists of 2830 acres scattered throughout Upton and extending into the towns of Grafton, Hopedale, Hopkinton, Mendon, Northbridge and Westborough.  The land contains a variety of forested habitats, ranging from red maple swamps to upland forests dominated by white pine and oak, to red pine plantations planted by the CCC in the 1930’s.

This page is a work in progress and will eventually contain sections about many aspects of the geology, vegetation, wildlife, and ecology of Upton State Forest.
