"News & Issues" piece on certification of forest practices in Maine. A forum sponsored by Maine Businesses for Social Responsibility held in Portland last week ended with advocates on both sides criticizing the other's programs. The debate is over two different certification programs: Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI) and Forest Stewardship Council (FSC). Some say negative publicity generated by the debate has prompted voters to approve another clear-cutting referendum this fall. The Maine Forest for the Future campaign has been able to obtain most of the signatures needed to get the issue on the November ballot.
