Kennebec Land Trust Local Wood Initiative

With support from the Elmina B. Sewall Foundation. KLT and its collaborators are working to advance forest-based local economies and support the long-term conservation and sustainability of Maine’s woodlands

This initiative is pursued with a commitment to:
• sustainable forestry
• land stewardship
• strong and resilient local economies
• conservation of both working woodlands and ecological reserves
• reduced energy consumption and transportation costs based on local products
• providing support to landowners, loggers, processors, manufacturers, and consumers

We recognize that our local economy, wood products markets, recreational opportunities, wildlife habitat, water quality, and quality of life are directly connected to the long-term stewardship of Maine’s natural resources.
