Maine’s logging industry has a problem, according to a University of Maine study funded by the trade group Professional Logging Contractors of Maine.

“Using information from the Quarterly Census on Employment and Wages, in Maine the industry saw a 15% decline in total number of jobs, while the jobs in the industry nationally dropped 9%, between 2014 and 2021,” the study said. That was with annual 2021 earnings of $65 thousand per job.
