Our Programs : Maine Tree Farm
More than 80,000 Mainers own millions of Maine's forested acres as small woodlots. Click on underlined words to link to more information. Only about 3,000 of these individuals are active in either the Maine Tree Farm program or SWOAM (Small Woodland Owners Association of
Maine). Few woodland owners take advantage of professional forestry expertise to help them plan for integration of all the natural resources present in their woodlands. Lack of awareness and planning sometimes leads to poor resource management decision making. Our first step in addressing this education and awareness need was to survey and subsequently understand the real and perceived barriers preventing more professional planning for these smaller woodland properties.
