S2E3: What does the future hold for Maine forests?
Forests play a central role in defining the state of Maine — from the geography to the economy to just about any aspect of Maine’s way of life that you can think of. The way forestry is practiced and the products that come from the woods have started to change drastically. That trend will ramp up even more in the future. Steve Shaler, director of UMaine’s School of Forest Resources and associate director of the Advanced Structures and Composites Center, talks about these changes and what they mean for the state of Maine in the third episode of the second season.
