Forest Heritage Days (FHD) is an annual community event at 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, special guest performances and presentations, a craft fair, raffles, horse and carriage rides, children’s activities, forestry exhibits and the signature Game of Logging competition.
They welcome you and your family to join them this year to learn about the working forests of Maine – the history, the present practices, and what’s in store for the future.
