AUGUSTA, Maine — The Maine Forest Service says a Madison logging company has agreed to pay a $35,000 fine for violating the state’s clear-cutting laws.

The forest service says T.R. Dillon Logging Inc. violated state forest management laws when cutting land in the towns of Industry and Peru.

State officials say the violations were not intentional, but that the company didn’t have harvest plans prepared by a licensed forester before it began cutting the land.
