The collection is arranged in two series: I. Forestry study files and II. Business records. Series II is further sub-divided into seven sub-series: 1. General office files; 2. Land survey account records; 3. Survey field books; 4. Forester client files; 5. Land survey client files; 6. General information files; and 7. Maps and plans.

The final sub-series contains maps and plans generated by McChesney for his clients as well as those copied from other sources, primarily registries of deeds and town offices. These maps are arranged alphabetically by place and then by client name. General maps of a community follow each set of client files. Especially represented are properties in Bangor, Hampden, Hermon and Holden, Maine.
