Forest-based tourism contributes more than $20 million in state tax revenue. Bill Altenburg Jr., head of Timberland Trails of New Hampshire, proposed hut-to-hut recreation in Maine's backcountry, but the state's major landowners declined to participate in an arrangement that Altenburg said would be profitable to all parties. International Paper finally decided to proceed with Altenburg's project, but chose a site in New Hampshire. Maine landowners are waiting to see if the venture is profitable for IP. Profile of Altenburg; related article on John Willard Jr. of Rockwood and Bo and Jeff Norris of Dover-Foxcroft, who tried to develop private recreational businesses using paper company land. The Norrises, owners of Borealis Yurts, supply yurts to Altenburg and Willard.
