The Professional Logging Contractors of Maine
Founded in 1995 by a group of loggers, the Professional Logging Contractors (PLC) of Maine is a trade organization formed to give independent logging contractors and sole proprietors a voice in a rapidly changing forest industry. Our Board of Directors is made up entirely of loggers, making us a logging organization that is run by loggers for loggers. PLC is proud to be founding members of The American Logging Council, an organization that represents the professional logger on a national level. PLC strives to meet the following three goals:
~Increase professionalism until we are the best in the world.
~Help the public to understand what we know, and can do to increase the health of the Maine forest.
~Promote “business lessons learned” to move from survival to a thriving model of small business success for the benefits of our families, our employees’ families, and our rural and urban communities.
In 1999 PLC created the first international third-party certification of harvesting practices in the world, known as the Northeast Master Logger Certification Program.
OUR MISSION is to improve the public image of harvesting our natural resources through accountability and transparency.
