 On December 14 Patrick along with Tom Doak, MWO and Barrie Brusilla, Mid-Maine Forestry presented the recent report from the Forest Carbon Task Force focused on recommendations for smFormsall woodlot owners 10,000- 20 acres. Two key recommendations were to build a greater MFS regional forester outreach capacity to educate landowners on active forest management and evaluating the Open Space Taxation program for enhancement of carbon friendly management practices.
