Brief Highlights

CFRU continues its strong program of research for its 35 members representing nearly 8.2 million acres of Maine’s commercial and public managed forestlands.

We had 4 new cooperators join the CFRU in 2021. We welcome The Conservation Fund, Tree-Star Timberlands INC., Hancock Forest Management, and Fresh Timber, LLC. Our membership also voted to include the Maine Forest Service and Maine Inland Fisheries and Wildlife on the advisory committee.

CFRU research persisted in 2021 despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, with research scientists producing 45 deliverables across 11 research projects. This summer, the CFRU launched a YouTube page to feature research highlights and findings as well how-to guides for identifying forest pests and outlining L2 branch sampling protocols. We look forward to expanding our video portfolio that speaks to the CFRU’s commitment to high quality research this coming year.
