Livingston speaks to News Center Maine about warming winters’ impact on Maine loggers
News Center Maine interviewed William Livingston, associate professor of forest resources at the University of Maine, about the potential impact of warming winters on Maine’s logging industry. Livingston said that it is hard to tell if the majority of climate impacts on Maine forests will be positive or negative since Maine’s forests are so diverse and will have winners and losers as temperatures increase. “As long as we take care of it, it will grow, and it will be in good shape. The Maine forest is a very resilient forest and something that is a real asset to the state,” Livingston said.
