"News" piece on LD 1920, a legislative bill that would regulate liquidation harvesting in the Maine woods, which was aired before the Legislature's Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry Committee on Feb. 22. The bill is supported by the forestry industry, and is opposed by environmentalists, who want to end the practice. Liquidation harvesting, according to the Maine Forest Service, is "the purchase of timberland followed soon thereafter by the removal of most or all commercial value in standing timber, and subsequent resale of harvested land. Forest Service head Tom Doak estimates that 6 to 8 percent of timber cut in Maine each year is liquidated.
