Woodlot thinning

PHILLIPS — The local chapter of the Small Woodland Owners Association of Maine and the Maine Forest Service will meet at 62 Pinkham Hill Road with the father/son business “Forest Improvement Services,” owned by Scott and Ryan Bubier, to see pre-commercial thinning jobs they have done. This will take place from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Feb. 18.

Discussion will cover the different terms used and confused in thinning various stages of a woodlot, preferred equipment, the silviculture of thinning, the costs and what cost share funds are out there to get that work done. Be prepared for the weather; snowshoes will likely be needed.

No need to preregister. For more information, call Patty Cormier at 592-2238 or email [email protected]
