During National Forest Products Week, we give thanks for the beauty of our forests and the bounty they provide:  from the lumber in our homes and the paper we print to the medicines we take, the water we drink, and the air we breathe.  We recommit this week to sustainable stewardship and management of our forests… for safeguarding key economic resources, supporting millions of jobs, and helping to ease the climate crisis. The United States is the world’s largest producer of forest products, and every day, American foresters, loggers, mill workers, carpenters, scientists, restoration specialists, outdoor recreation workers, and others rely on forests for their livelihoods. …To recognize the importance of the many products generated by our Nation’s forests, the week beginning on the third Sunday in October of each year as “National Forest Products Week”.
