Delmar B. Lovejoy
Old Town, 7 miles from campus
Owner: University of Maine Foundation
History: The Delmar B. Lovejoy lot was purchased in 2016.
Current Uses: It currently contains mature stands of mixed oak, aspen and birch on the uplands and hemlock/fir on the lower slopes. This lot abuts the Henderson lot which was heavily harvested in the 1990’s. Some areas contain a large percentage of understory beech.
Potential Uses: This lot will be managed for timber production and wildlife habitat. Upcoming harvests will be regeneration harvests, with uplands bird habitat particularly in mind. Potential wildlife research projects are possible.
