In 1975, as many as 30 percent of the loggers working in the Maine woods were Canadian, and there is a continued reliance on Canadians in the industry today. Part of the reliance has to do with geography and convenience, with Canadians able to get to the work sites easier and quicker than most Mainers. A shortage of labor during World War II made reliance on Canadians an easy thing, and many of them continued coming after the war years. Even so, there are 13,000 fewer loggers of any nationality working in the Maine woods today than shortly after the war. Details.
