states of Massachusetts to the south, New Hampshire to the east and New York to the west, and the Canadian province of Quebec to the north.The Green Mountains run north-south for the length of the state. The state capital is Montpelier, the least populous state capital in the United States.The geological pressures that created those peaks remain evident as the Champlain Thrust, running north–south to the west of the mountains (now the eastern shore of Lake Champlain).It is an example of geological fault thrusting where bedrock is pushed over the newer rock formation.The Green Mountain range forms a north–south spine running most of the length of the state, slightly west of its center.In the southwest portion of the state are the Taconic Mountains; the Granitic Mountains are in the northeast.As a result of tectonic formation, Vermont east of the Green Mountains tends to be formed from rocks produced in the Silurian and Devonian periods.
years ago, the second mountain building period created Green Mountain peaks that were 15,000–20,000 feet (4,600–6,100 m) tall, three to four times their current height and comparable to the Himalayas.
Its greatest width, from east to west, is 89 miles (143 km) at the Canada–U. border; the narrowest width is 37 miles (60 km) at the Massachusetts line. The state's geographic center is approximately three miles (5 km) east of Roxbury, in Washington County. The origin of the name "Vermont" is uncertain, but likely comes from the French les Verts Monts, meaning "the Green Mountains".
say that the mountains were called green because they were more forested than the higher White Mountains of New Hampshire and Adirondacks of New York; others say that the predominance of mica-quartz-chlorite schist, a green-hued metamorphosed shale, is the reason.
Since 1970, reduction of farmland has resulted in reduced environment for, and reduced numbers of various shrubland birds including the American woodcock, brown thrasher, eastern towhee, willow flycatcher, golden-winged warbler, blue-winged warbler, field sparrow, and Baltimore oriole.
The New England cottontail disappeared from the state in the early 1970s, out-competed by the eastern cottontail rabbit, imported in the 1800s for hunting, and which is better able to detect predators.
