It is the mission of the CLP program to provide the best training and education to people involved in the Maine logging industry. The program is equally committed to recognizing the skill and professionalism of those who meet and exceed the CLP standard. The CLP Program is based on the following standards – Safety, Skill, Knowledge, Stewardship, Professionalism and Pride. Today, under the sponsorship of the Maine TREE Foundation, the program takes pride in the fact that the accident rate for loggers is half what it was when the program began. As a result, mechanical CLP loggers pay up to 59% less for Worker’s Compensation than non-certified mechanical loggers.
