The Mahoosuc region, straddling the New Hampshire-Maine border, is a 600,000-acre tapestry of vast forests, including mountain summits, 55 miles of the Appalachian Trail, access to world-class recreation, and abundant timber. This remarkable landscape supports wildlife, drinking water, and working timberlands, including locally owned community forests. The complex ecology of the region demands thoughtful conservation to sustain it, and the economies that rely on its resources. But much of it is unprotected. TPL is working strategically with local communities and partner organizations to identify high priority conservation needs. TPL has protected more than 30,000 acres in the Mahoosuc region, including the creation of 13 Mile Woods Community Forest in Errol, and additions to it and to Umbagog National Wildlife Refuge along Mollidgewock Brook.
