Invasive Plant Management Program

The 2022 application period closed on March 18, 2022.
We are no longer accepting new applications for the 2022 season.


Attention Woodland Owners and Natural Resource Professionals:

  • PLEASE NOTE: THIS PROGRAM IS OPEN TO LANDOWNERS WITH PARCELS OF AT LEAST 10 WOODED ACRES.
  • Invasive plants choke out native trees, shrubs, and wildflowers, and harm wildlife habitat in your woods!

This Program Will Provide Landowners (public or private ownerships 10 to 10,000 acres) with:

  • A list of trained professionals available for contracting to assess your property and prepare an Invasive Plant Control Practice Plan (IPCPP). Landowners must agree to services with a natural resources professional from the approved list, and complete a Practice Plan Application. The Maine Forest Service will reimburse up to half of the cost of preparing the Invasive Plant Control Practice plan.
  • Landowners with an approved IPCPP will be eligible to apply for treatment of invasive plants on their property.
  • Contact the Maine Forest Service by email or by phone at 207.287.2791
