Maine Licensed Foresters

The Maine Forest Service encourages forest land owners to seek the assistance of a consulting forester. A consulting forester can provide advice and assistance to landowners who choose to implement forest management projects on their woodlot.

A consulting forester is a professionally trained forester, generally with a bachelor of science degree in forestry or natural resource management. A consulting forester's services are available to the public on a fee or contract basis.

To practice in Maine, a consulting forester must be licensed by the State of Maine as a Licensed Forester.

The home page of the Board of Licensing for Professional Foresters:

  • Summarizes the requirements for becoming a Licensed Forester and requirements for license renewal
  • Provides minutes of the meetings of the Licensing Board
  • Allows you to search for a Licensed Forester by name

Note: the Licensing Board home page DOES NOT allow a geographic search for foresters and does not allow the user to browse a list of LPFs. You can only find a forester if you search for a specific name.
