#NationalForestProductsWeek celebrates the essential role forest play in our environment and economy. For generations, our Nation's forests and woodlands have provided millions of Americans with an abundance of job opportunities, goods, and recreational activities. Forests are also a part of a broader ecosystem. This week, we pay tribute to the forest products industry for the important contributions it makes to our society and economy, and we recommit to keeping our wooded landscapes vibrant and strong. #MSforestry #forestproud #Forest2Market
