How many acres of woodland do you own or annually manage?
Please describe, with two or three sentences, why you are interested in woodlot ecology and management. Your answer helps us ensure that only those people truly interested in woodlots are added as members.
I work as the program coordinator for Maine Organic Farmer and Gardeners Association's Low Impact Forestry Program. We hold classes and workshops teaching forestry concepts, small harvesting systems and safe chainsaw use to landowners and have a 125-acre demonstration forest in Unity, Maine. I also manage 50 acres of family land in southern Maine. I've been watching recordings of Forest Connect webinars for several years, and I'm interested in more actively joining the conversation as a member of this group.
