  • Description - Baxter State Park

    Baxter State Park as we know it today began to develop about 12,000 years ago as the Lauren tide ice sheet melted northward out of New England (Katahdin was once covered with glacial ice). Over the next 1,000 years the land that would become the Park developed a tundra ecology and the first human inhabitants left evidence of their presence. The following 1,000 years brought a steady emergence of forest growth. Over the ensuing 8,000 years as the climate gradually warmed, the forests of the northern Maine developed from the boreal forests now found further to the north to the spruce and fir dominated 'Acadian' forest. This forest is characterized by poor or moderately drained soils, over compressed glacial till or areas of shallow soil over bedrock (Leak and Riddle, 1979). U.S. Department of Agriculture Bulletin 544 of 1917 offers a description of the earlier Park forests.
