Forest Products Ever-present Value to Our Lives

“Paper and wood products allow us to communicate, teach, and learn. They provide us shelter and energy, and they package and deliver our food, medicine, and manufactured goods. And whether it is a paper containing the Gettysburg Address or a child's crayon masterpiece, these products capture life's memorable moments across generations.”
- President Barack Obama

Official Proclamation of National Forest Products Week, 2014
October 17, 2014  

Forest products are essential components of modern life. They are made from a renewable resource — trees. They encompass an incredibly wide range of products with nearly limitless everyday uses from facilitating education, communications, hygiene, food storage, and product protection to providing shelter and homes. New and innovative forest products are being developed while constant improvements are made to existing products.  AF&PA is proud to represent the paper and wood product manufacturers who create and deliver these products to people across the country and around the world.
