UNITY – Join Sebasticook Regional Land Trust, Maine Forest Service and landowner Andy Reed from 2 to 5 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 23 for a tour and discussion of a recent harvest on a private woodlot.
Landowners, loggers, foresters and others are welcome. The mechanized harvest operation was completed in February 2013. The tour will be a chance to review and discuss different aspects of the harvest, including forest management/silviculture, invasive species, equipment and operational layout, forest products, invasive species and wildlife habitats.
The discussion will be led by Maine Forest Service District Forester Morten Moesswilde. The landowner and the logger will be on hand to answer questions. Advanced sign-up appreciated, 948-3766 or email@example.com.
This is a rain or shine event; please dress appropriately. To reach the woodlot, approx. 3.1 miles west of Unity on Route 139 turn south on Bacon Road to the woodlot gate (approx. 0.5 miles).
