Tree growth in Maine, your own a timber tract of land acreage and want to reduce the property taxes.
How does that tree growth program work, how long does it last and what is a land management and harvest plan all about you wonder. What is it and why is it a good idea to maximize the health of your woodlot and at the same time get it into a tree growth property tax reduction plan program?
We have blog posted about land, the Maine tree growth program before.
But things change with the regulations and requirements for tree growth have too so being on your toes is needed. To avoid misteps and deep regreats that can be costly and are so so avoidable.
Lots of myths about the tree growth program too like if I enter the program can I still cut the woods I own?
The tree growth plan is just that. A strategy to maximize the growth of the "tree farming" and at the same time take into consideration the wildlife in the acreage. The soil erosion that impacts the environment if a cutting operation does not "tread lightly".
Respect for the watershed that every woodlot empties into if streams or other waterways cross them. The steep terrains and poor timber cutting practices will cause fish to choke with the silt, soil washed into the previous natural resources.
