Some argue that Maine shouldn't be exporting raw logs, while others say that the log exports could lead to investments in technology and product innovations. Julian Sobin, the individual who arranged the export of huge numbers of raw hemlock logs to China, thinks that there will eventually be a market for processed wood, but only after a relationship with the Chinese is firmly established.
