Summer timber harvest planned for area near Dobsis Dam Rd.

May 3, 2011

The Downeast Lakes Land Trust Board of Directors has approved the 2011 summer timber harvest plan for the Farm Cove Community Forest.

Harvest operations may cause localized interruptions of some recreational uses, and the noise of mechanical timber harvest may affect the experience of visitors.  To help recreational users or campowners that may wish to avoid active harvesting operations, Downeast Lakes Land Trust provides a general location map for planned harvests.

The 2011 summer harvest will occur within the area displayed on this map.  Harvest prescriptions vary within this area, and not all portions of this area will be harvested.  Lakeshore buffers will be maintained.  The harvest and road work are expected to occur between June 15 and August 30, 2011, as weather and site conditions are suitable.
