Maine Forest Heritage Days is an annual community event that honors the state’s most historic industry. The forest products industry has been a staple in Maine for generations and provides an annual economic impact of $8 billion, employs one in 20 Mainers and contributes 28.9 percent of all state exports. Previously each year since 1991, families and community members gathered to celebrate this vibrant industry with several days of forestry fun.
