Why is it Important to Have Public Support for Commercial Forestry?

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 sustained." Scott Jones, CEO of the Forest Landowners Association, 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, Attorneys, Foresters)?

Arthia W. "Billy" Rye, owner and president of Forest Management Specialists, Inc., 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.
