Abstract

Maine's wood industry depends on winter--the frozen ground allows loggers to get in and out of the forest, and the season provides an opportunity for mills to stockpile wood. A wet fall and January thaw have put some mills behind. Inventory management has become trickier with global competition, increased energy costs, and higher wood prices. The paper industry is also dealing with the increased cost of chemicals and with LD 730, which limits the use of Canadian loggers. With details on how individual mills are coping.
