So after many years of looking, my wife and I finally bought a piece of land in Prentiss. We are very excited to start building our cabin. We are aware of the building permit process and have done a new tree growth plan and are going to modify it soon to remove one acre from tree growth to build cabin and put driveway in. I was wondering if anyone could recommend a reliable person or company with machinery that is capable of cutting a driveway.

I'd like to add that this forum has been a wealth of knowledge for us throughout the years as we decided on property , we have been able to find so much information on the area and whole process of buying land in Maine. So thank you to all who contribute.

You'll probably get a better response if you move this to the general forum. In the meantime, my sister lives over that way. I'll ask her for suggestions.

She suggested Treeline in Lincoln. She doesn't think it's a good possibility but if they have equipment in the area they might, or they might know who to refer you to. 794-2044

You don't need to amend your tree growth plan to put in a driveway. Driveways are compatible with forestry.

Tom Linscott of Springfield is the best driveway builder in the area. He has done hundreds of them. 738-2705 home, 794-4523 cel.

Also very good is Hazen Jipson in Webster. 765-3044 cel.

It's important to consider winter access, how you will move snow and drainage when designing your driveway and home site. I work in Prentiss all the time.

You will get more responses on the Maine page than the Bangor page. Prentiss is not in the Bangor area.
