If you own a woodlot and are interested in learning about opportunities to actively manage your property for your own personal objectives, this is a course you should attend. Woodlot owners in Maine manage their woodlots for a number of different reasons, among them aesthetics, firewood, recreation, wildlife, maintaining health and value, and forest products. Maine Forest Service personnel will facilitate the course and organize presentations from a variety of experienced professionals with different backgrounds.

Topics we will be covering in these classes will include:

  • defining your goals as a landowner
  • landowner programs
  • tree identification
  • promoting wildlife in your woods
  • timber trespass and wildfire safety
  • silviculture
  • non-timber forest products
  • what to plant in light of climate change
  • logging damage
  • common insects and diseases of trees

The information and contacts you gain from this course will help you make decisions on how to sustainably manage your woodlot for years to come.

The class will meet on Monday evenings from May 3-June 7 from 6:00 to 8:30 pm online.

This course is sponsored by the Maine Forest Service.
