Thanks to Senator Tom Saviello, new legislation allows clean wood ash to be stock-piled, as long as "run-off" guidelines are followed. Joe Haley of M&H has graciously offered his Oquossoc shale and gravel pit as a central distribution center.
Special thanks to Stratton's ReEnergy Biomass Plant for transporting their wood ash biproduct to our Rangeley distribution center. It's a win-win: We take their unwanted biproduct, and they don't have to transport the ash to a transfer Station in Norridgewock.
From Oquossoc Shale and Gravel Pit, volunteer trucks, like Mark Beauregard,
M & H, and Doug Burlingame, load the ash to take it to nearby log landings.

|Micheal Koob, from Koob's Garage, after long hours, spreading ash with his Kubota and raking it into the soil at dusk. Only took 45 minutes, wow!|
And finally, Rick Baker seeding the Seven Islands' winter road. With the ATV-attached seeder, it only took one hour. The evenly-scattered seed spreads about 8 feet on each side. Ron Ray of Cupsuptic Fabrication also seeds.
