Maine Pine Tree Zone Information

Introduced by Governor John E. Baldacci in 2003, Maine's Pine Tree Zone Program is designed to spur economic development and job creation in targeted regions of the state where unemployment is relatively high and wages are relatively low. 

" Increasing economic opportunity for the people of Maine is our highest priority.  The Pine Tree Zone program encourages businesses to locate in targeted areas of the state, where we need to create good jobs.  The program helps Maine compete against other states for business attraction." - Governor John E. Baldacci
