COUNTY — Are you interested in improving the health of your forest? Join us Sunday, November 5 from 10 a.m.-12 p.m. at the Tenmile River Demonstration Forest in Brownfield to go over the basics and get your questions answered! Maine Forest Service District Forester Mike Richard will teach us about best practices with timber stand improvement and pruning. Participants will also learn about cost-share opportunities, tools, and other topics. There will be a mixture of walking, talking, and potentially practicing with hand tools.
