Large-scale-forest industry is concentrated in the northern portions of Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine. Industrial landholdings in Maine are sizeable, lying chiefly in the spruce-fir zone. Both even-and all-aged management systems are feasible. Stands badly need to be cleared of low-quality trees, and in remote and inaccessible areas economic efficiency demands use of large-scale management technology--both difficult topics to explain to the public. Fractionalization of nonindustrial private holdings and vastly increased cutting for fuelwood are affecting timber supplies, particularly for firms that have been depending on ready supplies of cheap wood.
