Northeast Region

Region-NorthEastProperties under management in the Northeast Region total 396,820 acres, encompassing 8 US states and the province of Quebec from southeastern Virginia to Stoneham, Quebec.   Timber types range from loblolly pine and southern bottomland hardwoods in the coastal plains of Maryland and Virginia, to Allegheny and Northern hardwoods in Pennsylvania and New York, and southern boreal Spruce-Fir forests of New England, Maine, and into Quebec. The general management focus is toward natural regeneration systems for both hardwood and softwood timber types.  A variety of intermediate treatments are utilized to encourage regeneration response, diversify species mix, and improve the growth and vigor of residual stems.   Harvesting activities can occur year round though the majority of the activity occurs in the winter months.

Of note within the region, over 319,639 acres are encumbered by working forest conservation easements. While the primary goal of these easements is to restrict subdivision and/or development, some also provide for general public access and recreational opportunities on the eased property.
