Healthy, productive forests are critically important for a renewable economy while renewably creating products all people need while improving the health and quality of life for all people in our nation. 

The third week in October has been celebrated and acknowledged as National Forest Products Week. Our renewable forests and the products that we extract are so important that all standing Presidents and many Governors of individual states on both sides of the political aisle have made declarations since the first Forest Products Week in 1960.

Stop by the Thomas Poe Cooper Building and help celebrate Forest Products Week, October 17-23.
