After some of the toughest years in the long history of Maine’s forest products industry, a new, stronger forest economy is emerging thanks to investments of about $1 billion.

FOR/Maine (RoadMap)


Forest Opportunity Roadmap / Maine (FOR/Maine) is a unique cross-sector collaboration between industry, communities, government, education, and non-profits, which have come together to ensure that Maine adapts to market changes quickly and strategically in order to maintain our leading role in the global forest economy.
The coalition was created with support from the U.S. Economic Development Administration and U.S. Dept. of Agriculture. We are combining collaborative actions, innovation, market and resource management expertise, and reliable data to guide smart investment and market expansion in the forest economy.

FOR/Maine has finished its data-gathering phase and released its goals and strategies in the Forest Opportunity Roadmap, available at www.formaine.org.

Goal 1 Sustain and grow Maine’s existing and emerging forest products economy, reaching $12 Billion in economic impact by 2025.
Goal 2 Manage the wood resource using sustainable and responsible forest management practices.
Goal 3 Prepare workforce for the future of the forest products economy.
Goal 4 Increase prosperity in Maine forest economy communities, especially those in rural Maine, including those affected by mill closures.
Goal 5 Organize the forest products industry with committed public sector partners, including the University of Maine, to implement the vision and goals.
