"Cultivating Skill, Knowledge and Pride in the Maine Woods"

    The CLP program is designed to train and certify loggers in safe, efficient, and environmentally sound logging practices.

Mechanical CLPs currently enjoy a Workers Compensation rate that is 69% less than non-certified mechanical loggers!

News Release

2011 Wood processor Report now available

The Maine Forest Service has released its annual report on wood processed by primary processors in Maine. Each year, the Maine Forest Service collects information from Maine's primary wood processors regarding the volume of wood processed in Maine. Information is also collected for volumes imported into Maine or exported from Maine. This report summarizes, for 2010, the volume of wood harvested in Maine, processed by Maine mills, and imported into or exported from Maine. Wood flow data is summarized for sawlogs, pulpwood, biomass chips, other miscellaneous products, and imports and exports. In 2010, the Maine Forest Service received reports from 130 primary processing mills (sawmills, pulp and paper mills), 49 portable sawmills, 82 firewood dealers, 37 loggers and brokers who may have exported wood, 26 concentration yards, and 8 mills that burn some form of wood for energy.

Report Highlights

" Maine's forest products industry consumed 15.4 million green ton equivalents in 2010, up from 14.7 million green ton equivalents in 2009. Eighty percent of the supply (12.3 million green ton equivalents) was harvested in Maine, while 20% (3.1 million green ton equivalents) was imported.

" Maine landowners harvested 14.6 million green ton equivalents of wood in 2010, up slightly from 2009. Sixteen percent (2.3 million green ton equivalents) of the 2010 harvest was exported, down from 2009 (2.5 million green ton equivalents).

" Maine's sawlog processing in 2010 was .7 billion board feet, up slightly from 2009 (.6 billion board feet).

" Maine's pulp and paper producers processed 8.5 million green tons of pulpwood, up .5 million tons (6%) from 2009 consumption. Seventy-six percent of the pulpwood originated from Maine's forests; 24% was imported.
