Forests for Maine’s Future is committed to educating people about the contributions Maine’s millions of acres of forestland make to our economy, our environment and our quality of life. Each month we publish a Fresh from the Woods feature article about some aspect of the forest economy, science, biology or recreation. Over the last 10 years we’ve published almost 100 informative pieces on subjects as varied as new uses for wood, the eastern white pine, how research forests improve our knowledge of the woods, Maine moose, old growth forests and carbon offsets. You can find all of those articles and many more by clicking over the Feature Article tab and then clicking on Fresh from the Woods archives.

If you want to receive the monthly article by email, you can subscribe by clicking here. And be sure to post our articles on social media and forward them to your friends who love the woods. If you have ideas for future articles let us know by email at
