Description: Great Northern Paper, a major industrial forest owner in Maine (2,000,000 acres), began a program for more intensive silviculture in 1972. The first step has been a major woodlands reorganization into five geographical districts with forest management and procurement responsibilities delegated to these districts. This has been accompanied by a re-inventory of timberlands and development of a new computer-processed resource and information system (WIPS). Current and future major emphasis will be placed on improved administrative procedures for the very close coordination of wood procurement, logging and forest management functions to insure the realization of the maximum growth and quality potential of Great Northern?s timberlands.
