Timberlands Inc. of Dixfield in the 1960s sold a 17-acre parcel abutting Mount B
Timberlands Inc. of Dixfield in the 1960s sold a 17-acre parcel abutting Mount Blue State Park to the state in exchange for 30-year cutting rights on a 1,160-acre upland parcel. The company cut in the park from 1967 to 1972. It then let the land sit until 1992, when it recommenced cutting, leading to protests by the Mount Blue Coalition, an environmental group. Some observers wonder if Timberlands should be forced to give up their cutting rights. Details.
