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.
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".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.By the mid-19th century, wild turkeys were exterminated in the state through overhunting and destruction of habitat.Sixteen were re-introduced in 1969 and had grown to an estimated flock of 45,000 in 2009.
