Forests for Maine’s Future is committed to educating people about the contributions Maine’s millions of acres of forestland make to our economy, our environment, and our quality of life. Each month we publish a Fresh from the Woods feature article about some aspect of the forest economy, science, biology, or recreation. Over the last ten years, we’ve published almost 100 informative pieces on subjects as varied as new uses for wood, the eastern white pine, how research forests improve our knowledge of the woods, Maine moose, old-growth forests and carbon offsets. You can find all of those articles by accessing the Forests for Maine’s Future Archive.
