Forest Heritage Days (FHD) is an annual community event in Greenville, Maine that honors the state’s most historic industry. The forest products industry has been a staple in Maine for generations and provides an annual economic impact of $8 billion, employs one in 20 Mainers and contributes 28.9% of all state exports.

Each year since 1991, families and community members gather to celebrate this vibrant industry with two days of forestry fun. Events include Colby Woodsmen demonstrations, working forest bus tours, guest presentations, a craft fair, raffles, horse and carriage rides, children’s activities, forestry exhibits and the signature Game of Logging competition.

The Game of Logging in an international logger education program designed to provide loggers with the precision felling and chainsaw skills required by the professional chainsaw user. Loggers develop skills to establish control over their job so that trees fall where and when the logger wants. Not only is the logger more productive and safe, but the quality of the forest products are improved, and the impact on the harvest site is more environmentally sensitive. The competition demonstrates these skills for the public, including events such as the speed cut, cookie stack, precision bore, and the spring pole.

Event hosts and sponsors invite you and your family to learn about the working forests of Maine – the history, the present practices, and what’s in store for the future.
