Economic Contributions Webinar
A project initiated by the Northeast –Midwest State Foresters Alliance, Forest Markets & Utilization Committee researched contributions of the forest products industry in the 20 Northeast and Midwest states. The project was funded, in part, by a Landscape Scale Restoration Grant and administered by Michigan Department of Natural Resources, Forest Resources Division. The results of this study were presented in a webinar (see presentation, presentation slides, and chat log).
