Today the company I work for sent me to tour JD Irving Sawmill in Dixfield Maine (86 miles North). The tour was very,very interesting. The sawmill was located on 20 achers It took hours to see all of the mill. JD Irving is the #1 land owner in Maine. I was very interested in this tour and seeing the pine process, given that I am in retail and my husband is a home builder.The mountains were pretty and I could picture Belgians twitching and logging even though JD Irving no longer uses drafts, somehow my mind always ends up in the draft barn. It was interesting to see and hear sustainable forest management for quality products is part of the commitment.
