Maine Forest Service: Hardwood inventory forecast predicts opportunities, challenges. Analysis prepared by James W. Sewall Company

The analysis, prepared by James W. Sewall Co., indicates that the hardwood inventory, at 351 million tons, is 16.6 percent higher than in 1995, with growth exceeding harvests on a statewide basis by 6 percent.
