Invasive Plant Management Program


Attention Woodland Owners and Natural Resource Professionals:

  • PLEASE NOTE: THIS PROGRAM IS OPEN TO LANDOWNERS WITH PARCELS OF AT LEAST 10 WOODED ACRES.
  • Invasive plants choke out native trees, shrubs, and wildflowers, and harm wildlife habitat in your woods!

This Program Will Provide Landowners (public or private ownerships 10 to 10,000 acres) with:

  • A list of trained professionals available for contracting to assess your property and prepare an Invasive Plant Control Practice Plan (IPCPP). Landowners must agree to services with a natural resources professional from the approved list, and complete a Practice Plan Application. The Maine Forest Service will reimburse up to half of the cost of preparing the Invasive Plant Control Practice plan.
  • Landowners with an approved IPCPP will be eligible to apply for treatment of invasive plants on their property.
  • Contact Jack Hernandez Landowner Outreach Forester by email or by phone at 207.287.8430
