64th Maine Woodland Owners/Maine Tree Farm Forestry Field Day

The Maine Woodland Owners / Tree Farm Field Day will be held this year in Wilton on Sept. 8 at the property of Rep. Russell Black and his wife Susan, winners of the 2018 Maine Tree Farmer of the Year award.

Tours of the Black’s woodlot will highlight their sugarbush operation, wildlife conservation efforts and timber production.

Rep. Black serves on the Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry Committee. He credits Abbott Ladd, the first Maine Woodland Owners Executive Director, for motivating him to join the Maine Tree Farm program. 

The Blacks have been in the tree farming business since the early 1970’s.
