BRUNSWICK, Maine — The public is invited to the 57th annual Tree Farm-SWOAM Field Day on Saturday, Sept. 10, at 15 Bridge St. in Brunswick.

Host Allen Higgins, Maine’s 2011 Outstanding Tree Farmer, will be honored and will lead tours of his white pine woodlot, developed over the years from an old dairy farm on 90 acres owned by his family.

The field day, a joint production of the Small Woodland Owner Association of Maine and the Maine Tree Farm Association, carries on a longstanding tradition of bringing together experts and members to deal with the hands-on issues that affect nearly every woodlot owner in Maine.
