Bethel Citizen previews Fuller’s talk about generating income from nontimber forest products

The Bethel Citizen advanced a Western Maine Chapter of Maine Woodland Owners’ program led by David Fuller, agriculture and nontimber forest products professional at the University of Maine. The free public program will be held at 7 p.m. Feb. 20 at Oxford Hills Comprehensive High School in South Paris. Fuller works with farmers and woodlot owners to generate income from nontimber forest products — fiber, foods, herbs, medicinals, walking sticks, resins and seeds. He’ll share with attendees what they can make or use from nontimber forest products, including fiddleheads, spruce gum, birch bark, maple sap and balsam fir.
