Minnesota Forests' Products
What things come from trees?
More than 30,000 people in Minnesota's forest products industry make paper for books, magazines, brochures, computer printers and more. We make lumber, siding panels and engineered wood products for building homes, including oriented strand board. We make utility poles, pallets, industrial packaging and recycled pulp for many commercial applications, and also produce Specialized Cellulose used in textiles and other consumer goods. Plus, we produce the electricity to run our facilities and your homes.
