The forest products industry is the economic mainstay of thousands of people living in northeastern Minnesota. From loggers and truck drivers to board plant, sawmill and paper mill workers, producing forest products is more than just a job. It is a way of life. Because of this, forest health and regeneration receive special care and attention.
Minnesota Forest Industries (MFI) is an association representing the state's forest products companies. MFI encourages conservation, proper forest management, and industry development. MFI is committed to fostering sound environmental stewardship, multiple use of timber lands, as well as long-term timber supply.
