Maine Woodland Owners Welcomes  Harold Burnett as Staff Forester!Maine Woodland Owners Welcomes Harold Burnett as Staff Forester!
Harold Burnett has joined Maine Woodland Owners as its staff forester, a part-time role. Executive Director Tom Doak said, “Harold is a very experienced forester and well-known in the forest community. He will be a great help in managing our growing Land Trust.” Burnett took up his work recently and hit the ground running. Harold said, “I’ve laid out timber sales in Lamoine and Sullivan, begun familiarizing myself with the Penobscot and Winn woodlots, flagged boundaries in Standish, in advance of a blazing project, checked in on a harvest operation in New Gloucester, and conferred with several new, potential woodland donors to our Land Trust.”
