Maine's development started with the first harvest of its timber resource when the Popham two colonists built a ship there in 1607. The economy of the state has been largely built on its forests ever since. The most heavily forested state in the nation, Maine still is important in the forest economy of the United States after 300 years of timber cropping. It is the country's leading producer of white pine lumber and among the leaders in output of pulpwood.
