Description

In any brief period, the acreage of forest in Maine changes extremely slowly. Yet over the time since settlement, its forest area has changed a great deal indeed. A summary of estimates of the state’s forest area in the past may be of interest to naturalists and historians. This publication provides a brief summary of such estimates for years between 1600 and 1995, with cautions as to their limitations.
