Forest Management for Carbon Sequestration Focus Groups

tree & logs photoFocus Group Background

Researchers at the University of Maine are looking for forest landowners and managers to participate in a virtual focus group discussion on ways to enhance forest growth and carbon stocks. The 120-minute focus group discussion will identify barriers and opportunities to implement specific forest management practices across Maine.

A key aspect of this research is to better understand the opportunities and barriers to adoption of management practices that can help enhance forest growth and carbon stocks. This research will also help us understand management constraints among Maine farmers and foresters which could influence the development of educational resources and state-wide policies that could be helpful to landowners across the state. The results will also be used to help estimate Maine’s forest carbon sequestration and timber supply potential.

If you are interested in participating, please RSVP by filling out this form.
