An industry viewpoint

medium_Image - Street View 15 July, 2013.jpg Because those in the forest industry work with nature to earn their livelihood, they must respect the integrity of the land with an eye towards the long term. Thus they mostly see themselves as faithful stewards of a limited natural resource to be used not only to support their own family, but to be nurtured and protected for future generations as well.

Furthermore those in the industry have a strong belief in family and community. They profoundly understand the inter-connectedness of trees, soil, water, and air. They understand and will uphold the ideal of the common good, even when it may place some boundary on personal interest. These are concerned citizens who will continue give voice to the ideals of sustainable forestry so as to preserve the opportunity for all to enjoy the fruits of their labor.
