Working with Your Woodland - Waldoboro

Tue, 29 Aug 2017 07:06:38 EDT

This class is for woodland owners and others who want to improve their understanding of the forests they own, manage, or enjoy - and the choices and options they have to accomplish their goals. Woodland stewardship and management includes a wide range of possible activities, from invasive plant control to wildlife habitat improvement to timber harvesting. All of these are more successful with some basic knowledge, adequate planning, and in many cases, working with professionals, e.g. foresters and loggers. Forests take decades to grow, and careful decisions can greatly enhance the many benefits from woodland. The class consists of evening classes, plus there will be 3 optional afternoon field trips, most likely Thursday afternoons, to provide on-site examples of woodland management. The instructor is Morten Moesswilde, District Forester with the Maine Forest Service, along with several guest speakers. Morten Moesswilde is the Maine Forest Service District Forester for Knox, Lincoln, Waldo, and Kennebec counties.

On October 17 and 18, 2017, the Maine Forest Service is partnering with the Northeast Forest Fire Compact, the National Park Service, the North Atlantic Fire Science Exchange and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration for an event in Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. The theme is "The Great Acadia Fire - 70 years later - lessons and future challenges." The event will include lectures, discussions and a field trip in areas where the historic fire occurred. This is a unique opportunity for the wildland fire community to increase public awareness about fire history in Maine and the importance of advanced preparedness.
