National Forest Products Week


In the United States, the week beginning on the third Sunday in October is National Forest Products Week. The President of the US is requested to issue each year a proclamation calling on the people of the country to observe this week with appropriate ceremonies and activities.

 

On October 18, President Trump called on Americans to pay tribute to the forest products industry for the important contributions it makes to our society and economy and called on the people to recommit to keeping our wooded landscapes vibrant and strong through proper management and care. Our nation's woodlands provide millions of Americans with an abundance of job opportunities, goods, and recreational activities while supplying resources for paper, packaging, lumber, renewable energy, and countless other products.
