A conference in Augusta, Maine, during January 1981 considered the ability of the forests to sustain increased demands created by industrial expansion. Damage by the spruce budworm, together with decades of nonmanagement and diameter-limit harvesting, has left both spruce-fir and northern hardwood stands yielding far below potential but still capable of responding to good forestry. Participants were concerned that government regulations had a dampening effect on investment in forestry, and they regretted cutbacks in the state's forestry programs.
