Protecting, Promoting and Sustaining Michigan's Forest Products Economy
Look closer at Michigan's forests. Sweeping vistas and critical habitat. Jobs that help our economy thrive. Bowling pins, eyeglasses, sailboats and syrup. Precious resources and vast opportunities. This is what we protect, this is what we grow.
Michigan's forest products industry contributes $21.2 billion and more than 99,000 jobs to the economy.
More than half of Michigan is forested, and 95 percent of that forest land can be used for the production of timber. The state of Michigan owns 21 percent of forest land.
