New York's Woods and Forests Work for Us

Every day our lives are improved by our forests and the products they provide.  Actively managed by skilled professionals and sustained  by strong markets, our forests provide a continuous supply of wood for manufacturing, energy and innovative products.  All this while delivering clean air, clean water, fish and wildlife habitat, recreational opportunities and carbon benefits.  

Good paying, highly-skilled jobs are made possible thanks to working forests in rural communities still struggling towards economic recovery.
