A coalition of Maine forest industry members has mapped out new strategies to grow the sector's workforce, including targeting potential employees from high schools and out of state, improving marketing, and using the existing workforce to expand learning opportunities.

The strategies are part of a report issued this week by Forest Opportunity Roadmap/Maine, or FOR/Maine, which was formed in 2018.
