Major Employer, Jobs and Development

Wood products play a significant role in a modern economy. By making forest sustainability and innovation top priorities, the wood products industry will continue to be a significant employer and supporter of rural economies.
 
The environmental benefits associated with wood products— renewability, responsible forest practices and a light carbon footprint—are helping to strengthen markets for wood products, in turn stabilizing the wood industry's ability to create jobs and support local economies. Strong markets for wood products provide a financial incentive for landowners to invest in their forests and keep them healthy for future generations.
