Forest Heritage Days- 20th Celebration
August 13th-14th

What is Forest Heritage Days?

Certified Logging Professional and the Game of Logging …
This is a weekend dedicated to providing the public with some knowledge and activities about the working forests of Maine.

The Certified Logging Professional (CLP) program has promoted and recognized professionalism among loggers since 1991.   There have been approximately 5,410 Maine loggers that have attended the CLP program. Safety, felling techniques, safe and efficient wood harvesting, forest management and silviculture, the business of logging and first aid for loggers are included in the curriculum.
The “Game of Logging” was incorporated into the CLP program in 1994. Since that time, this training system has become the standard for logger training nationwide. At this training, loggers develop skills to insure that trees fall in the right place and at the right time.
