Holt Research Forest
About Holt Research Forest
The Holt Research Forest is the site of long-term forest ecosystem research in Arrowsic, Maine. Maine TREE acquired the 350-acre property in 2014 through a merger with the Holt Woodland Research Foundation. The woods are predominantly a dry ridge, oak-pine ecosystem, in Maine’s coastal climatic and midcoast biophysical regions.
The Holt Research Forest research plan emphasizes two goals: (1) Monitor long-term changes in the forest’s plant and animal populations; and (2) Document the effect of forest management on these populations.
Workshops and education programming has always been part of the HRF mission. A new outdoor classroom will help to expand this activity. Maine TREE is excited to continue offering programs at the Holt Research Forest for the public to enjoy.
