DLLT Sustainable Timber Harvests – Fall 2021

Downeast Lakes Land Trust is currently harvesting a 280-acre area to the east of Sonny’s Lane, north of Milford Road.  The purpose of this sustainable harvest is to thin mature hemlock and white pine stands, while increasing the presence of spruce for improving deer wintering areas and American marten habitat. In addition, completing an overstory removal will promote future growth of mixed hardwood regeneration in the understory.  If you are recreating in this area, please use caution on the roads.
