BROWNFIELD, Maine — Join the Oxford County Soil and Water Conservation District, NRCS, and Maine Woodland Owners Western Maine Chapter at the Tenmile River Demonstration Forest in Brownfield, Maine for this second of three events about NRCS programs available to woodland owners. This session will focus on what forestry practices NRCS conducts and get a chance to see what they look like.
Learn about the different kinds of practices you can implement on your land for improving timber stands, protecting water resources, and enhancing wildlife habitat. Merle Ring, retired Maine District Forester, and Michael Richard, Maine District Forester, will explain how these practices work to improve your forestland and meet forest management plan objectives. Some of these practices can be implemented as part of NRCS cost-share programs which can assist landowners by reimbursing them for some of the costs. NRCS staff will be present to answer questions.
