Gabe Study Cited in BDN Article on Maine Forest Products Industry

The Bangor Daily News reported Maine’s forest products industry contributes $8 billion to the state’s economy, including 38,789 jobs, according to a study released by the Maine Forest Products Council and co-authored by Todd Gabe, a University of Maine economics professor. Gabe told the BDN that comparisons between this study and previous studies conducted by others are likely invalid because researchers don’t use the same data. Gabe said results depend on how researchers define the forest products sector and that he looked at products generated by using forest products and didn’t include forest-based recreation.
