Small-Scale Sawmilling: Re-localizing Lumber Production in Maine

May 2 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Free – $10

Join Michael Friedland to learn about Maine’s lumber economy. Friedland is the owner of a socially and environmentally conscious lumberyard in Southern Maine that uses a farmers’ market model to aggregate and sell products from small sawmills. We will discuss the difference between sustainable forestry and sustainable forestry products and explore opportunities and obstacles to expanding localized lumber economies in our communities while considering why Maine, the most forested state, relies so heavily on imported lumber. This is the first installment in a year-long series of webinars and workshops focused on sawmills and local wood production. 

Sliding scale: $0-$10.
