Forest Products' Ever-present Value to Our Lives


“Today, forests provide products we use each day, including paper, wood, and building and packaging materials. During National Forest Products Week, we express our appreciation for the incredible bounty forests provide and we renew our commitment to ensuring the next generation can enjoy their irreplaceable resources.”

- President Barack Obama

Official Proclamation of National Forest Products Week, 2016
October 14, 2016  

Forest products are essential components of modern life. They are made from a renewable resource — trees. They encompass an incredibly wide range of products with nearly limitless everyday uses from facilitating education, communications, hygiene, food storage, and product protection to providing shelter and homes. New and innovative forest products are being developed while constant improvements are made to existing products.  AF&PA is proud to represent the paper and wood product manufacturers who create and deliver these products to people across the country and around the world.
