The state Land Use Regulation Commission has conducted studies that show that Maine's North Woods are being fragmented by camp subdivisions, the construction of logging roads and a boom in outdoor recreation. LURC has begun reviewing its comprehensive plan to find ways to balance protection and development in the woods, and the decisions made by the commission will shape the character of the forest for years to come. The state's unorganized territories cover 10.5 million acres of the northern half of the state, and contain 16,000 miles of rivers and streams and over 3,000 lakes. Details, related article on the principal issues highlighted in studies of development trends in the wildlands.
