ATTENTION – Forestry Activities within Unorganized and Deorganized Areas

Changes in the permitting and notification process have gone into effect for the following: timber harvesting, land management roads, water crossings on/for land management roads, and gravel pits less than 5 aces in size. The Maine Forest Service now regulates these activities in management subdistricts and protection subdistricts (except for in development areas in P-RP subdistricts). Public Law 2011, Chapter 599 (enacting LD 1739).

Where to send your FON (Forestry Operations Notification): Continue to mail all FONs to the Maine Forest Service, Attn: Arlene Davis, 22 SHS, Augusta, ME 04330.

Note: The application forms below are LUPC forms that are in the process of being revised to reflect the changes outlined above. The MFS is using these LUPC forms temporarily while updated forms are being developed. Consequently, there may be places where references to the LUPC's Chapter 10 Land Use Districts and Standards will be replaced with references to the Maine Forest Service Chapter 27 Rules. Chapter 27 is now in effect.
