Delmar B. Lovejoy

Old Town, 7 miles from campus

49 acres

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.
