Demeritt Forests

The Dwight B. Demeritt forest includes over 2,000 acres in Old Town and Orono immediately adjacent to the University campus. This is the oldest portion of University Forest lands. The primary objectives of this forest are Education, Research, Demonstration and Recreation. The forest is extensively used by faculty for teaching, and to a lesser degree for research. Public recreational use of this forest is very heavy, with an extensive system of walking, biking and ski trails. Demonstrations on various aspects of forestry occur throughout the year. Among the recurring demonstrations on the forest are a maple sugaring operation and a forestry Best Management Practices demonstration area.
