Maine Forest Dashboard website available

The University of Maine Center for Research on Sustainable Forests has partnered with the Maine Forest Service to develop and release the Maine Forest Dashboard website.

The site provides current information about aspects of Maine’s forest, including recreation and tourism, conservation, forest products and family forests. It also provides interactive graphing capabilities with important statewide utilization data, such as annual county harvest levels by species (1996–2014) and nominal annual stumpage pricing by species and product (1959–2013). This data previously resided in annual reports prepared by the Maine Forest Service. The new website offers greater access to this historical data and ability to assess long-term trends.

The website will be regularly updated as new data become available and additional features added. For more information, contact the Center for Research on Sustainable Forests, 207.581.3794;
