Log A Load Thank You

The PLC received this amazing update from MacKenzie, the 2021 Children’s Miracle Child from Northern Light/Eastern Maine Healthcare. MacKenzie attended our Annual Meeting in October to speak at the event and lend a hand in our Log A Load for Kids fundraising efforts. Her story is inspiring and we are so proud that we were able to return the favor with the help of Barry Equipment, Mike Conway and the generous donations of our members to send her to see the New England Patriots in early January. Thanks MacKenize for sharing your story and for your work helping Maine kids!!!

FINAL CALL – Calling All Foresters and Loggers – We need your Input About the Emerald Ash Borer Forest Health Issue

This anonymous survey is being conducted by Dr. John Daigle and graduate students Tyler Everett and Emily Francis in the School of Forest Resources at the University of Maine. The purpose of this study is to understand landowners’ perceptions of emerald ash borer (EAB) and the management approaches that can be used to address this forest health issue. You must be at least 18 years of age or older to participate in the survey.

If you have any questions, please contact jdaigle@maine.edu or tyler.everett@maine.edu
