Directory

The Town of Ashland, Maine has partnered with industry and institutions to build the market for Structural Round Timber (SRT) across the north and mid-Atlantic East Coast. This SRT Initiative, Original Mass Timber Maine, is providing education and resources to the Architecture, Engineering, and Construction community. By growing markets for SRT, this initiative will be key in generating economic opportunities for northeastern forest products in sustainable commercial construction.

This Directory is meant to connect industry-leading technical experts, sustainable forestry entities, SRT fabricators, and other regionally-sourced forest products to commercial construction markets. Through collaboration, Original Mass Timber Maine will build markets for and provide beautiful, affordable, and durable round timber structural systems while instilling a love for nature, promoting conservancy, and restoring a sense of awe and delight in our woodlands. Together, we will change the way people connect to and interact with the built and natural environments by bringing sustainably sourced structural round timber to the places we live, work, and play.
