Mainebiz references UMaine logging study in report

Mainebiz referenced a study conducted by University of Maine faculty titled “The Economic Contribution of Logging and Trucking in Maine,” in an article about the return of a 12-week certificate program in logging. According to the study, conducted by researchers from the Margaret Chase Smith Policy Center and School of Forest Resources, the logging and woods trucking industries contributed $619 million to Maine’s economy. The output supports Maine’s forest product industry, which contributed $7.7 billion to the state economy in 2016.
