Why is it Important to Have Public Support for
Joe Clark is
Forest2Market’s Client Representative for Supply Chain Services and Sales.
Approximately 360 million acres, or 70 percent, of the working forests
in the U.S. are on private land. Forestry-related industries contribute to
state, regional and national economies. Private timberlands contributed
approximately $92.0 billion of the total $107.5 billion contribution of
forestry-related businesses to GDP. A continuing cycle of planting, growing,
and harvesting and active forest management maximizes forests’ ability to
clean our air, clean our water, and provide a mosaic of landscapes for
wildlife. Without public support, all of that could suffer.

Why is it
Important to Have Good Markets for Forest Products?
"Without markets, we cannot be successful and private forests won’t be
a nationwide association based in Atlanta, Georgia,
stated in his remarks on opening day of the 2019 FLA conference held earlier
this year in California. Wood is renewable, beautiful and durable, and its
production has significantly less impact on the environment than most other
materials. The United States is the largest supplier of forest products in
the world, providing nearly half of the global supply of wood fiber.
Restrictions to the global markets is a huge challenge for America's working
forests, and may have the unintended consequence of placing significant
barriers to free trade while doing nothing to maintain the sustainability of
our resources here in the United States. Scott and his organization are
outspoken proponents for markets of forest products.

Why is it Important to Have Trusted Advisors (Accountants,
Arthia W. "Billy" Rye, owner and president of
has assisted over 500 landowners in five different states with marketing
their timber and other forest management activities and is considered a
trusted advisor to many of his clients. A trusted advisor can diagnose a
client's problems and challenges and make the right recommendation to
improve the situation. Forest landowners certainly can use a consulting
forester for their properties, but accountants and attorneys are helpful as
well. Because of their subject matter expertise, trusted advisors know their
business, their client's business, and they have a enough general knowledge
about how things work to offer advice worth taking.
