"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 64% less than non-certified mechanical loggers!

2014 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.
