Sustainable forestry
8.3 million acres statewide are certified as sustainably managed by independent auditors --that’s about 50 percent of Maine’s working forest.

Maine’s forests

Maine’s forests are essential to the quality of life that Mainers cherish. Forests provide clean water and air, crucial habitat for wildlife and great recreation opportunities. “Undeniably, what sets Maine apart from the rest of the country — and the major reasons that Maine’s forests remain largely intact and healthy — are the diversity of markets that Maine’s forestland owners have and the ability of forest-based industries to adapt, strengthen and diversify those markets.” –Keeping Maine’s Forest-Based Economy: A National Demonstration Project
