Here’s a potpourri of interesting and useful links and information!

The Maine Forest Service has produced maps for the each of the 248 towns in which statewide standards for timber harvesting and related activities in shoreland areas took effect on January 1, 2013.  These maps are intended to help foresters, loggers and landowners determine where the standards apply.  Maps currently are available for download in PDF format.  Shape files are in preparation and will be released as soon as they are ready.  Please note that these maps are advisory and that actual ground conditions determine how and where the rules apply.  Please also note that these maps only apply to timber harvesting and related activities in shoreland areas – for all other land uses you must consult the shoreland zoning map at the town office. Maps can be accessed at: http://www.maine.gov/doc/mfs/fpm/swstds/sws_maps.html.
