Important Update on Revaluation (as of 5/25/2021):

After speaking with the Owner of Maine Assessment & Appraisal Services, Garnett Robinson, I have some updated information. The company will be waiting until late summer to complete there revaluation. They found themselves very ahead of schedule. Meaning, they don't want to finish too early in the "building season" and have to redo their work and go back to reassess all new construction.

Also, this will give the Town Office a chance to complete the 2021 Tax Commitment and then upgrade to the new software system that will hold all the new tax cards and data once they are finished.

As soon as I have a date for their return, I will post it here.


Beginning the last week of April 2021, Maine Assessment & Appraisal Services, Inc will begin their full revaluation in Woodland. They will be re-assessing all land and buildings within the Town. 

I highly encourage you to visit their website. (https://www.maineassessment.com/) There you will find a history of the company, a listing of previous revaluations, and also you will see photos of the staff. There is contact information listed on their website as well. Once you are on the website, you will have the option to click "Revaluation Projects" where Woodland will soon be listed. 

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to call the Town Office.

History of Woodland

The Town of Woodland, formerly known as Township No. 14 Range 3, was surveyed for settlement by Lore Alford of Old Town in 1859, and was divided into lots of 160 acres each. The townhip is bounded by New Sweden on the north, by Caribou on the east, Wasburn on the south, and Perham on the west. At the time when the first clearing was made in Woodland, both Perham and New Sweden were wilderness townships and had not been lotted for settlement. The low price at which the state offered these new lands to actual settlers attracted the attention of the men who wished to make homes for themselves and families, and they were not long in the market before the sturdy blows of the pioneer's axe were resounding through the forest and clearings were commenced in different portions of the town.

Woodland was incorporated as a town on March 5, 1880, the name being descriptive of a land abounding in wood. The naming of Woodland from No. 14 township was said to have been by Mrs. J.G. Thayer and her daughter, Percees, at a regular town meeting. The town was first surveyed on November 28, 1877, and at the time, found to include 34,102 square miles.
