Abstract

Peat deposits in and near Piscataquis and Somerset Counties and northeastern Aroostook County, Maine, were investigated for their estimated potential as peat resources suitable for energy, horticultural, and agricultural uses. Fifty sketch maps with sections and laboratory analyses illustrate the amount and quality of peat resources. The total yield of commercial quality peat is estimated at 23,670,000 short tons air-dried peat.
