THE FOREST OF THE FUTURE

The timber and paper industry is vital to the rural Arkansas economy. Arkansas produces over 18.9 million acres of timber each year. The state is looking to expand its role in the timber business, as the United States still has a great need for domestic timber. Go to the Arkansas Economic Development Commission website to learn more about Arkansan efforts in timber and how your company can get involved.
