Minnesota Forests Strengthen Our Economy Statewide.

When you think about Minnesota's forests, what's the first place that comes to mind? Most people picture northern Minnesota with its vast acres of pine, aspen, basswood, oak and maple.

But Minnesota's forests exist far beyond the northern areas. It's the same with Minnesota's forest interests. They also extend well beyond the expected. From Aitkin to Zumbro Falls, nearly 300 Minnesota cities are home to businesses from which the forest products industry purchases goods and services. See if your hometown is one of them.
