SWOAM was established in 1975 as a non-profit organization. Our mission is to promote sound forest management and strengthen long-term woodland management. SWOAM is the only statewide organization dedicated to supporting the interests of Maine's 120,000 owners of small forested parcels. SWOAM's professional staff offers woodland owners free information and advice about landowner liability, taxes, hiring a logger or forester, protecting wildlife habitat, and more! Contact us!
