Reminds me, somewhat, of the fellow I was talking about from here in NB. Such things as highly figured wooden tubs that the Japanese rave over. He's got no fleet of trucks to brag about though, not that big of a business but very niche and spendy.  ;)

Pre-commercial thinning pays off. :)

Swamp Donkey - you do realize that Loring closed back around '94 - and took all those transplants and half The County with it...

Lots of retired AF guys around finding other things to do.  Many that moved came back to live out their time. ;)

Glad to hear some came back.  I left in '99 and things were still shrinking.

There is a lot of new homes springing up around the mountain. They don't get built off minimum wage. I remember one resident (retired air force) was complaining on TV about the windmills.  ;) But yes, retail has suffered in the county, the Aroostook mall is just a shadow of the boom times, their biggest customers are New Brunswickers.

Must be wood to cut in northern Maine isn't their? New sawmill in Ashland area. But at the same time fields lay fallow in Smyrna and Oakfield area and Amish moving in. They don't farm that I see.
