Most people do not pay attention to tree management.  They just plow through the trees and regret it later.  Good advice

Hi Andrew.  I am told with all these tree management programs we have more trees than when the Pilgrims landed.  I have no idea how the figured that out.

Noah ... Every agent should be carrying their picture shooting iron strapped to their hips. To capture the local area flavor sparks.

S and D ... Lucky to live where I do and boy, are the prices low for properties of all kinds!

James ... Not if you want to protect the environment and get the most out of the woods. It is an investment you need to protect and there are natural resource laws to remember, abide by! Maine is all about protecting the environment.

Conrad ... Some expert got the skinny from an ancestor of someone that was there in the tree census. (Yeah right).
