Maine’s Forestry Opportunity
Maine’s expansive northern forest, abundant natural resources, and close proximity to major consumer markets position the state to become a global leader in forestry.
Maine is attracting millions of dollars in investment for forestry projects from companies looking to leverage the Maine wood and timber brand. Our state is home to industry-leading academic and forestry leadership institutions, all dedicated to supporting and growing sustainable forestry technologies.
Maine has recently been designated as a “Tech Hub” by the Biden-Harris Administration for the state’s groundbreaking work in Forest Bioproducts Development.
