Charles Lusky, Forest Land Enhancements

IMG_1242IMG_1241IMG_1248IMG_1251IMG_1252IMG_1272IMG_1273IMG_1276There is a long tradition in Maine that private land be open for numerous public uses, such as hiking, hunting and snowmobiling, without prior permission. With all of the open space around us, it is hard to believe that about 94% of the land in Maine is privately owned.

In 1972, Maine passed the Tree Growth Tax Law that is designed to help landowners not only retain their land but to also make it productive woodlands. A minimum of ten acres, as well as a forest plan, are needed to participate in the program. Not only does the landowner benefit by paying lower annual taxes on the land but so does the general public since many properties might otherwise be lost to development or other uses.

In this western Maine region there are a number of loggers. However, when talking to people, there is always one name that is mentioned consistently–Charles Lusky. Charles’ company is named Forest Land Enhancements and is in Fryeburg. He knows the woods inside and out and takes pride in working with landowners to keep their property productive not just for the next ten years but for future generations.

In any business, testimonials from previous clients are always important. When asking about Charles, attributes that you hear multiple times are: hard-working, honest and trust-worthy, all of which are very important when hiring someone to work with a family asset.

A member of the Lovell Volunteer Fire Dept, Charles is a visible participant of the local community. If you are thinking of having some tree work done, don’t hesitate to contact Charles at 207-925-3199207-925-3199.

P.S. If you are interested in the history of logging and how it was done prior to heavy machinery, here is a great video to watch: From Stump to Ship: A 1930 Logging Film.
