Are you a landowner in Maine or wishing you were one?
If you farm your Maine land and look at the wooded sections as something needing the same attention to details you pour into the effort with your soil, then the Maine tree growth program may be something to check into and kick into gear.
Talked with forester Irving Tower out of the Patten Maine this morning about the tree growth program. The intent of the program is to improved your woodlot, to manage the timber resource with respect for the environment and to safe guide the land use. Not just to save on your property taxes with a reduction if you file and continue your ten year woodlot tree growth plan.
How to cut your wood seems less of a science when the woodlot being put into tree growth has been hit hard already.
And not much of a woodlot to manage for timber stands. But in time there will be and some land needs more attention than others. The cost for a tree growth plan ranges around $10 an acre as a ball park figure according to Maine Forester Irving Tower.
The high cost state of Maine property taxes along the coastal sections can make tree growth for the reduction in the annual bill reason enough to get involved. If more than ten acres to manage. But to save taxes is not the reason to enter the tree growth program. Protect the wildlife, managing the woodlot for avoidance of soil erosion or harmful conditions that hurt our watershed is.
Low impact, treading lightly and being a good steward is what respect for the Maine woodlot is all about and why folks live here.
Property acreage, real estate in Maine with some size and space around whatever you buy and develop. Or just invest in and sit on the land in Maine. Underneath all is the land.
Maine. It is an attitude of taking care of what you have, or wake up to realize you no longer do. Land, they only made so much and stop production a few years back. Like to own a woodlot in Maine, then consider we have all sizes, prices, locations.
