The Forest Products industry in the United States has a lot to be proud of. Our industry supports one of the most crucial elements of a healthy planet; trees. By supporting the Power of the Printed Word and the beauty of ink on paper we are encouraging private landowners to manage their holdings and grow forests for our next generation.
I was reviewing International Paper’s Down to Earth Series recently and was reminded that wood is a renewable resource. It provides useful products while protecting the environment and maintaining the social and cultural values attached to forests. Consider these facts:
Every day the paper and forest products industry plants more than 1.7 million trees in the U.S.
Today, there are 12 million more acres of forests in the U.S. than in 1987.
