The Nature Conservancy says it’s joining Maine’s attorney general and Plum Creek Timber Co. in appealing a court ruling ordering regulators to give further consideration to Plum Creek’s Timber Co.’s development plan in the Moosehead Lake region.

The Nature Conservancy’s associate director in Maine says joining the appeal gives it more flexibility to participate in the legal process. Tom Rumpf says Plum Creek’s plan has environmental, economic and recreational benefits.

A superior court judge this month put a stop to Plum Creek’s plans for a sprawling resort and residential development in the Moosehead Lake region, citing missteps by the Land Use Regulation Commission when it gave its approval to the plan.
