            Our Forests

Katahdin Forest Management LLC currently owns approximately 310,000 acres of timberlands. This is primarily a mixed species natural forest. In other words, any given area will have a variety of tree species growing in it, and regrowth occurs through seeding or sprouting.  These timberlands have been actively managed for 100 years.

You will see many different stages of the timberlands in your travels around our lands. There are stands of timber that have not been cut for many years and in other areas you will see where cutting is currently being conducted.  

You will see seedlings growing in areas that have been recently cut, intermediate growth, areas where thinning has taken place to encourage quality tree growth and small clear cuts that were needed to salvage timber knocked down due to high winds.

The many different stages of growth help to feed and provide shelter to all of the animals that live upon these lands. From new hardwood growth that provides feed for the moose, dense new softwood growth that attracts the snow shoe hare and open beech ridges that attract the deer and bear, it is all here.  Road side pools created when roads are built, become home to many different species of frogs and salamanders.


Eagles, Owls, Ruffed Grouse, Spruce Grouse, Bobcats, Coyotes, Fisher, Pine Martin, Canada Lynx and many songbirds all call these forests home.

The cutting helps create something for each of these wild creatures, though not every wild animal or bird will be in all of the different stages of tree growth.

The timber harvested from these lands goes to many different mills.  It is used to make lumber for our homes, to make the newspapers that we read, the paper that we use in our computer printers, paper towels, toilet paper, paper napkins and the lower grade timber is even used to generate power and to heat many homes in the area.

KATAHDIN FOREST MANAGEMENT is part of the Acadian
                 Timber Income Fund.
