Its natural resources have provided recreational enjoyment and our livelihood for generations. Over generations we learned to depend on each other and work together for our shared good. Tending our working landscape and respecting each other is at the core of how we do things here – it’s The Mahoosuc Way.
The Mahoosuc region is a working landscape in Western Maine.
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. Trust for Public Lands (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.
